Grange's answers to the Kansas State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test are available.
In the test, Grange outlined his main legislative goals:
My top priorities will be to work on state debt reduction funded by cuts in wasteful
spending by various agencies after an independent audit of current budgets.
Stop the annual obscene increase in personal property taxes that seem to stifle investment, annual increases are to be expected however a more reasonable approach is necessary.
Tax relief at all levels, which can come about when we get government growth andexcessive spending under control.
