Shirley Endlsey of Great Bend recently returned from Topeka where she participated in the 30th Annual Kansas Silver Haired Legislature as a Delegate from Barton County. The organization, established by the Kansas Legislature, consists of individuals, aged 60 and older, elected by their peers to develop bills and resolutions that are of interest to Kansas Seniors and their families.
The 2013 Kansas Silver Haired Legislature considered and recommended legislation pertaining the Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism; property taxes; medical marijuana; and Senior Assistance Funding.
“The activities of the Kansas Silver Haired Legislature have evolved into an important Senior Advocacy force in Kansas,” stated Don Woodard, Shawnee County Delegate and Speaker of the Kansas Silver Haired Legislature. “We strive to speak for Kansas Seniors of all
needs and purposes.”
