The U.S. House of Representatives plans to take action as soon as next Tuesday on the Commerce, Justice Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill – the bill that funds the Legal Services Corp. LSC is the largest source of funding to Kansas Legal Services and is also devoted to ensuring our most vulnerable citizens have access to our system of justice. This bill proposes funding LSC at $300 million – a 20 percent cut. This proposed cut comes at a times when legal service needs for Kansans have increased and are at an all-time high.


Encourage your representative to oppose any amendment that cuts LSC funding or encourage their support for an amendment that will restore or increase funding. To find your district and representative, visit
