TOPEKA, Kansas – Republicans in the Kansas Legislature aren’t eager to give Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly any big wins ahead of her campaign for reelection.

Even so, many are backing her effort to close a potentially transformative business deal offering at least $1 billion in tax breaks and other incentives to lure a mystery manufacturer to Kansas.

Lt. Gov. and Commerce Secretary David Toland calls it “the largest economic development project in our history.”
