Kansas Economic Freedom Index

The Kansas Economic Freedom Index is a project of Bob Weeks, creator of the blog Voice For Liberty in Wichita. The purpose of the Index "is to identify Kansas legislators who vote in favor of economic freedom — and those who don’t."[7] Legislators receive a rating from 0-100 percent based on their votes on bills promoting economic freedom.


Ruth Teichman received a rating of 24% on the 2010 Kansas Economic Freedom Index.[8]
