Task Force Formed To Cut Kansas Child Poverty Rate

A 12-member task force has been established to recommend ways to reduce the childhood poverty rate in Kansas.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback announced the group’s formation on Wednesday. His wife will be an unofficial adviser to the task force, which includes the secretaries of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Department for Children and Family Services and the Department for Aging and Disability Services.

The governor says Kansas must reduce the generational cycle of poverty by improving the lives and health of children. He says they need help with their educational outcomes and their chances for long-term economic productivity.

The task force will have its first meeting on Nov. 19 in the Kansas Board of Regents conference room in Topeka.
