Given our priorities on race, unity, justice, and mission, KMS tracks a range of public policy matters at the national and local level, always looking to provide analysis for pastors and lay leaders while informing the public discourse through analysis and by helping pastors and lay leaders cultivate their own voice on issues that impact local civic life.

|What Else We Are Tracking|
We are tracking a bill on Alzheimer’s which will be introduced in the Congress the next few weeks. We are tracking work on the Medically Fragile in the new Congress and on drug pricing.
State Tax revenues are way up. Here is a good analysis piece that helps explain why. There are several states where budget battle hinge on tax revenues year to year.
If one of the issues we are tracking is a concern for you, please do take a minute to contact your member of Congress. Senate here and House here. Hearing from constituents is particularly important for offices and an important part of engaging the public process.
Periodically KMS develops faith-based analysis on contemporary topics. We’ll update this section throughout the year.
If you are interested in developing your voice further please consider hosting our citizenship and advocacy seminars. We walk clergy and faith leaders through best practices in developing relationships and their own unique voice with policy makers.
