Ron Estes on Budget & Economy

 

 


Returned $113M in unclaimed property, including tax refunds

In 2010 Ron was elected Kansas State Treasurer. As State Treasurer, he oversees more than $24 billion in public funds. Ron has continued his track record of finding efficiencies by coming in under budget by over $600,000 during his time in office. Key programs in the treasurer's office include Cash Management Unclaimed Property. Ron also serves on the Pooled Money Investment Board, which manages the investment of the state's idle funds.

During his tenure, Ron has visited all 105 Kansas counties and returned over $113,000,000 in unclaimed property to rightful owners. He also spearheaded legislation that improved the ability to match people with their unclaimed property through tax data. Another reform initiative changed law to require that unclaimed tax refund checks become unclaimed property so they can be matched with owners instead of remaining with the government.

Support a balanced budget amendment

Families in the 4th district know they have to balance their budgets. Business owners understand they won't be in business long without a balanced budget. The federal government should not play by a different set of rules. I support a balanced budget amendment that will force the federal government to get its financial house in order.

We returned $65 million to Kansans to help grow the economy

The 2014 Kansas Republican Party's "Clean Sweep" Bus Tour made stops in El Dorado and Augusta as they began their four-day tour across Kansas. Sen. Pat Roberts, Gov. Sam Brownback, Rep. Mike Pompeo, and State Treasurer Ron Estes made the stop visiting with constituents and talking about the upcoming election.

Estes said, "Four years ago when we had the clean sweep bus tour we elected Republicans all up and down the ballot statewide and federal. In those four years we've returned over $65 million to Kansans so they can help grow the economy in Kansas." He said the governor and legislature worked to improve the pension system in the state.

He said, "I'm a CPA. I have 32 years of directly relevant insurance experience for this job," he began. "If you want somebody who understands business and how to bring good business practices to this incredibly important insurance department. I'm your man."
