KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly will meet with President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

Kelly will be at the White House to discuss the state’s reopening plan and testing strategy, according to a news release.

They also will discuss “protecting America’s food supply chain, supporting Kansas’ farmers and partnering to ensure the health and safety of food supply workers during the coronavirus pandemic,” the release stated.

Kelly said she looks forward to the discussion.

"Our continued emphasis is on protecting Kansans' health and well-being, and helping the state recover from a public health crisis that has exacted a painful financial toll on many,” Kelly said. “The economic damage will be long lasting, and will require collaboration at every level.”
