TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly today signed a proclamation celebrating travel and tourism as an economic driver, business recruitment tool, and an important element of state and community pride.

“The travel and tourism industry are significant economic drivers in Kansas,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “The industry directly supports more than 66,000 jobs, and in 2019 alone, brought in $7.3 billion into our state. As we continue to get back to normal and recover from the pandemic, we will build on this success and create a robust, centralized effort to attract more travel and tourism to Kansas.”
