Governor Laura Kelly Announces Comprehensive ‘Framework for Growth’ Economic Development Strategy

4 Feb 2021


Governor Laura Kelly unveiled Kansas’ new, comprehensive economic development strategic plan, the first of its kind in more than 30 years.

“Our economic development progress over the past two years has been significant, but an effective strategy does more than focus on the here and now – we must plan for the future and set the stage for sustained growth and prosperity,” Governor Kelly said. “The Framework for Growth is a bold plan to address current and future trends in our state, while we continue to promote job growth and new capital investment in communities of every size all across Kansas.”
