OSAWATOMIE, Kan. — With an appropriate amount of sarcasm, state Rep. Kyle Hoffman, R-Coldwater, on Tuesday introduced one of the first bills up for action.

“We have for us today, at the very first, possibly one of the most important bills we’ll pass this session,” Hoffman quipped to a few chuckles in the audience.

That bill was none other than HB 2402, to establish in Kansas the National Day of the Cowboy.
