Governor Laura Kelly announced today that since her administration took office in 2019, Kansas has attracted more than $15 billion in private sector investment. This significant economic development milestone has resulted in more than 53,000 jobs created or retained. Almost half of the total committed capital investment has occurred this year, with two more weeks of December still to be reported. Almost $7.5 billion has been generated in 2022 – twice that of last year’s record amount.
