State Plane Flew Lawmaker To Vote

Associated Press - March 29, 2015 7:11 pm

State records show Rep. Virgil Peck of Montgomery County used a state plane to fly from western Kansas to Topeka and back to vote on school finance bill.

Peck was the only passenger on the plane from Coffeyville to Topeka on March 13 so he could vote on implementing block grant funding for the state’s schools.

Peck went home March 12 to attend several events in Coffeyville and Independence with Gov. Sam Brownback. The next day, the bill received 62 votes in favor, one short of the 63 needed for passage. The House held the roll call open for two hours before a final vote.

By the time Peck arrived in Topeka on the plane, two other representatives had voted for the bill.

Blatant misuse of State resources and taxpayer money. If he can use state property for his own personal agenda then what is to stop the public from using it? He should be disciplined !!
