State Government on the iPhone: New App: Kansas Statehouse
This new app* (free) is provided by Kansas Grassroots Consulting (KGC).
From the KGC Web Site:
- Quick access to most recent versions of House Journal, House Calendar, Senate Journal, and Senate Calendar.
- Live audio steam of House and Senate floor proceedings.
We have many ideas for future updates including Full House and Senate Rosters with contact information, seating charts, committee information and much more. Let us know what you would like to see in a future update.

*As the KGC web site points out this is new version (1.0) of an app that was introduced last year.
Last year we created a first-of-it’s-kind iphone app to help gain quick access to the important documents of the Kansas Legislature. Unfortunately the recent redesign of KSlegislature.org broke much of the app’s functionality and we had to pull it from the app store.
