On Thursday, December 20, 2018, the Speaker of the House for the Kansas House of Representatives, Ron Ryckman, Jr., announced that Representative Troy L. Waymaster will retain his position as chairman of the House Appropriations committee.

“I look forward in working with the new and existing committee members in crafting budget solutions for the state of Kansas,” Waymaster said after retaining his chairmanship post.

“I would like to thank Speaker Ryckman for his trust and confidence in me for this post.”

“This session we will have a different administration in the Governor’s office. We will see Governor-Elect Kelly’s budget to the legislature shortly after the 2019 Legislative Session convenes,” Waymaster continued.

The 2019 Legislative Session begins on January 14, 2019.
