Gov. Sam Brownback convened a meeting of Kansas leaders Friday in Topeka to discuss the toll the drought is taking on Kansas and to identify plans to help recover from the drought.
Brownback also launched http://drought.ks.gov, an online resource to provide drought information for all Kansans. The site includes links to state and federal resources for farmers and ranchers, small businesses, Kansans, cities, and counties.
Brownback updated the state’s drought disaster declaration late last month to include all 105 Kansas counties in an emergency status.
