TOPEKA, KAN. – The Kansas chapter of the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity today announced the launch of a statewide effort to repeal the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) in Kansas. TV and radio ads began airing this week to urge Kansans to contact their legislators and Governor Sam Brownback about repealing the energy mandates.
“Mandates such as the RPS are another example of well-intentioned policies doing more harm than good,” said AFP-Kansas state director Jeff Glendening. “There’s nothing wrong with investing in newer energy technologies, but these types of government mandates put a strain on the budgets of Kansas families who need reliable, affordable sources of energy.
“Rather than propping up one industry over others, we think it’s time for government to stop picking winners and losers in the marketplace.”

The TV and radio ads are part of the grassroots group’s overall mission to advance free markets and economic freedom in Kansas. Over the next several weeks, AFP’s effort to repeal the Renewable Portfolio Standard will run on numerous Kansas TV and radio stations.
