About KanFocus

About KanFocus

KanFocus is the best and most affordable source for every action in the Kansas Legislature, as well as an enormous amount of data about Legislators themselves, some of which you can’t find any place else on the Web. KanFocus is updated throughout the day every day, so you are always assured of timely and accurate information. Formerly known as VoteTracker, KanFocus has been the trusted source for complete legislative information in Kansas since 2003.

Our subscribers include a growing number of state agencies – such as the State Treasurer, Insurance Commissioner, SRS, Department on Aging and more – as well as major lobbying firms, corporations, associations, universities and every Member of the Legislature.

At the regular rate of just $1,000 per year, KanFocus is affordable on almost any budget. Consider the cost of just a few of the publications you would have to buy in 2015 if you don't have KanFocus:

 
KSA Volumes $555.00
KSA Supplements $117.50
KAR Volumes $232.50
KAR Supplements $41.25
Session Laws $41.75
Senate and House Journals $133.50
Bill Packet $205.00
Kansas Reports (2 volumes) $130.00
Kansas Court of Appeals 2d (2 volumes) $130.00
Total $1,586.50
 
And that doesn't include our years-long archive of information. You would easily spend thousands of dollars and still not have all the information you can get on KanFocus, and certainly not in the user-friendly format you will find here.

Even better is the fact that you don't have to pay $1,000. Ask about our special introductory and early-renewal rates that can save you hundreds of dollars off the regular rate.
