GOP 1st Congressional District candidate and State Sen. Tim Huelskamp responded to Governor Mark Parkinson’s vetoes of his EPA resolution and a budget amendment defunding Planned Parenthood in a strongly worded press release today.
“By vetoing these provisions, the Governor has thrown his political support to left-wing political interests like Planned Parenthood and those who push the alarmist global-warming agenda,” said Huelskamp. “The vast majority of Kansans want their elected officials to stop taxpayer funding of abortions, combat Obama’s cap-and-tax proposal, and resist an out-of-control EPA. Governor Parkinson is ignoring the voice of hard-working Kansans.”
He was joined by Jeff Glendening, Vice President of Political Affairs for the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, who said:
“We are disappointed to see the Governor veto the Huelskamp EPA amendment. The real beneficiaries of today’s veto are radical environmentalists. We salute Senator Huelskamp’s efforts and thank him for offering this amendment on behalf Kansas businesses.”
