SHAWNEE, Kan. — Olathe businessman and entrepreneur Greg Orman, the Independent candidate running for U.S. Senate, today released a detailed Congressional reform plan to put an end to the partisan extremism in Washington as the centerpiece of an eight-day, 18-stop “Problem Solving Tour” that includes public service projects in more than a half-dozen locations across Kansas.
Mr. Orman unveiled his Congressional reform plan and kicked off the bus tour Monday morning from his campaign headquarters in Shawnee, where he was introduced by Gerry Lopez, President and CEO of AMC Theatres, before making brief remarks. Orman was scheduled to participate in volunteer public service events in Lawrence at 9 a.m. and Topeka at 12 p.m. before ending the day in Manhattan with a campaign meet and greet.
Mr. Orman’s four-point reform plan, titled “The Orman Plan for Congressional Reform,” includes detailed provisions for enacting term limits, ending congressional pensions, banning lobbying by former members of Congress and eliminating so-called leadership Political Action Committees (PACs). The intent of the plan is to change Congress by encouraging true public servants to run for elected office and to eliminate incentives for people to stay in Congress for extended periods of time.

“Through my travels across the state, I’ve heard from a great many Kansans who are hungry for fundamental reform of the Congress. They believe, as I do, that the time is right for sweeping change and that the partisan extremists in Washington are on the wrong side of the coming electoral revolution,” said Orman.
“Washington is broken, and we all know it. But there’s a path we can choose this November right here in Kansas that will force Washington to act on our behalf, and it starts with electing leaders of courage and conviction who are committed to enacting key reforms that will fundamentally change the influence of special interests on Congress.”
Mr. Orman’s eight-day, 18-stop bus tour of Kansas will feature more than a half-dozen volunteer public service projects, including a school supply drive benefitting the Manhattan-Ogden Unified School District today at 6 p.m. at City Park in Manhattan.
The bus tour will also include stops in Salina, Hays, Colby, Garden City, Hugoton, Dodge City, Great Bend, McPherson, Hutchinson, Newton and Wichita.
