Dear loyal supporters,
Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words and support, we here at Team Brownback are confident we will do everything in our collective power to put our agenda forward for 2008, and with God’s help, a place in the White House in January 2009.
In this last month, I have worked hard for my proud state of Kansas, having voted to approve a digital television frequency fix for KFJX-TV Fox 14 in the Pittsburg, Kansas, market. The FCC approved this decision, which is very pleasing, showing, true to form that we are getting our tasks completed for the people of Kansas.
As the Ranking Member on the appropriations subcommittee that oversees funding for the FCC, I have worked hard to ensure that residents of Southeast Kansas have access to broadcast television without interfering with first responders or other emergency communications. The FCC decision will help smooth the transition from analog to digital television frequencies in both rural and urban areas of Kansas.
This month I also voted for Judge Leslie Southwick’s nomination to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Southwick’s nomination will now be considered by the full Senate at a later date.
Judge Southwick’s outstanding record speaks to what a great jurist he will be on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and I was proud to vote to move his nomination forward. I applaud my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee for recognizing Judge Southwick’s many qualifications.
In the coming weeks, if you have time and inclination, please log onto http://www.youtube.com/republicandebate to submit a question for the November GOP debate in Florida. We welcome your questions, especially from internet savvy people as you.
