2023 Statute


74-5002.Declaration of necessity and public policy. The legislature declares it necessary and to be the public policy of this state to promote, stimulate and encourage development of the general economic welfare and prosperity of the state through the promotion and development of industry, commerce, agriculture, labor and natural resources in this state. Such promotion and development requires that cognizance be taken of the continuing migration of people to the urban areas in search of job opportunities, and the fact that Kansas is making a needed transition to a diversified economy which creates new challenges for its people. Greater diversification and attraction of additional industry, accelerated development of natural resources, expansion of existing industry, creation of new uses for agricultural products, greater emphasis on scientific research, development of new markets for the products of the state and the attainment of a proper balance in the overall economic base are all necessary in order to create additional employment opportunities, increase personal income and promote the general welfare of the people of this state. To attain these goals, and to coordinate the activities of groups, public and private, which are engaged in these efforts, the organization, consolidation, coordination and arrangements herein provided have been established.
