Protect Kansas Workers from being forced to Subsidize Political Causes

January 25, 2013 J

HB 2023, otherwise known as “paycheck protection,” would prohibit units of government from automatically deducting funds used for political activities from paychecks.

Currently, a unit of government can process automatic paycheck deductions that are then contributed to a public union’s political action committee. We believe our government should not be processing these types of transactions.

This bill would not prohibit an individual from writing a check directly to the political action committee if that is what they desire.

The bill advanced through the House Commerce and Labor committee and will be debated on the floor of the Kansas House of Representatives next week. Please contact your representative today and encourage them to support HB 2023. We encourage you to act now — the opposition has already begun contacting legislators.

Take action now!
