"Water Issues in Kansas" (Public Event)

State Representative Tom Sloan

Tuesday December 17, 2013
3:00pm - 4:00pm
Nichols Hall, Apollo Room
Among the key factors that affect the future of our state are clean, abundant sources of water and affordable, reliable, and responsible energy supplies. Without both water and energy, our businesses and communities will decline, economic development will dry up, and future generations will be denied the recreational opportunities we enjoy today. State Representative Tom Sloan will provide an informed perspective on water issues facing Kansas. In particular, he will offer his thoughts on the upcoming legislative session and the challenges laid out by the Governor in his October 24th call to action for a 50-Year Vision for the Future of Water in Kansas. Sloan is recognized in Kansas and elsewhere for his expertise in energy, water, and related policy areas. In 2007, he convened a Kansas Reservoir Sustainability Summit. Currently, he chairs the Vision 2020 Committee, the Legislature's long-range planning committee, and is a member of the Transportation and Agriculture & Natural Resources Committees.
