Kansas economic policy will be addressed in a public forum sponsored by the Emporia League of Women Voters at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The forum will be held in the Court House Annex, 402 Commercial, Room 114.

Recent Kansas tax changes have severely impacted the state’s ability to make essential investments in neighborhood schools, roads and important supports for vulnerable Kansans. Annie McKay, Executive Director of the Kansas Center for Economic Growth (KCEG), will explain the long-term repercussions of the state’s current fiscal policies and recommend alternatives.

McKay joined the Kansas Center for Economic Growth as the Executive Director upon its launch in January 2013. KCEG is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that conducts research and analysis to promote and advance balanced, responsible budget and tax policies that help ensure that all Kansans prosper. Before joining KCEG, McKay worked as a research analyst with the University of Kansas, coordinating and assisting with evaluation of early childhood programs and federally funded programs targeting low-income students.

A Kansas native, Annie earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and has a master’s degree from the University of Chicago.
