Greg Lewis, R-St. John
15 Jul 2018 at 3:27pm

Why are you running for the Kansas House? Our district deserves a representative that supports our rural way of life - not one that votes with Topeka lobbyists and politicians against our rural values. I am proud to stand on my record and continue to fight for those things important to our district.

What do you think about Kansas lowering (2012) and raising (2017) state income taxes while hiking sales tax rate (2015)? The Brownback Tax Cut...

St. John tax break bills swimming against the tide
17 Feb 2018 at 4:34pm

State Rep. Greg Lewis, R-St. John recognizes sales tax exemptions “are not popular in the Statehouse.” But that’s what he is seeking for a grocery store/pharmacy/fuel center project in St. John. The proposed legislation could succeed “because it has such a narrow focus,” he said.

A long way to go and a short time to get there is the situation facing the Kansas Legislature when they return from their April recess. With two weeks left in the session they have no state budget and no school finance bill. Rep. Greg Lewis and Sen. Mary Jo Taylor both expressed disappointment in some of the major legislation that either didn’t pass or did and the governor vetoed the bill. The pair addressed about 30 are residents during a t...

Lewis files for re-election to Kansas House
26 Oct 2015 at 3:08pm
Representative Greg Lewis, a Republican representing the 113th House District, filed for re-election to the Kansas House last week.

One good legislator
17 Jun 2015 at 6:40pm
The 2015 legislative session has (thankfully) ended. Now we simply have to live with the consequences until the budget shortfall will likely be addressed again in the next budget session. However, all is not doom and gloom coming out of Topeka these days. Fortunately, we have a legislator in the 113th district who seems to be a voice for reason amidst all of the grandstanding and political maneuvering that went on at the end of the recent leg...

State of dysfunction
12 Jun 2015 at 6:43pm
Kansas legislators got across the finish line but not exactly like American Pharoah. More like a worn-out mule. They got a tax increase bill passed two hours before dawn Friday on the record-setting 113th day of their session, much to the relief of many who feared deep cuts otherwise to schools, prisons and social services. Said Rep. Greg Lewis, R-St. John: "Kansans who wanted real revenue reform lost today. Big corporate special interests won...

No real solutions in state's second longest legislative session
4 Jun 2015 at 3:20pm
Politicians always tell us "Topeka is a mess" or "Washington is a mess." Well, I’m not sure that I ever truly understood until now. Things are an absolute mess in the Statehouse. We are now 12 days past the date the legislative session should have been done - making the 2015 session the second longest in history. And I see no end in sight - just a lot of political games being played. And to top it all off, the governor is telling us that state...

Education funding a major concern expressed to Kansas legislators
9 Apr 2015 at 3:13pm
School funding was a main topic at the Blue Moon Coffee House Wednesday morning as Sen. Mitch Holmes and Rep. Greg Lewis held a town hall meeting to discuss issues in Topeka. Lewis said in his short time in Topeka, he has seen enough to know that things have to change. Legislators seem to have their backs against the wall and are not going to change their minds. "They are digging a hole and I wish they would stop digging," Lewis said. He has n...
