 What is the KRHA PAC?

Government decisions impact every aspect of the restaurant & lodging industry. KRHA PAC serves to strengthen the industry's political voice & support candidates who promote legislation and policies that create a fair business environment.  PAC funds bring the people's voice into campaigns, ensuring politicians know more about the people and businesses they represent. 


The KRHA PAC enables our lobby to build relationships with the people that matter from both sides of the isle. Campaigns are very expensive to run.  Without PAC dollars only the wealthiest individuals would be able to run for office.


No Matter what your contribution, your support of The KRHA PAC Club empowers the industry to support candidates at the state and federal level who believe in and support pro-industry and pro-business policies.

PAC 120 - $10 monthly contribution

PAC 240 - $20 monthly contribution

PAC 360 - $30 monthly contribution
