Agenda (all times Central Time Zone): 

11:00 AM Discussion with Lynn Retz: Lynn Retz, the Program Director for Energy at the Kansas Corporation Commission will join us through lunch. She will give a short talk about what she sees happening in Kansas and updates that she can share. Bring your questions for Lynn, as it will be an informal time for Lynn to talk to us.
