Rogers is currently embarking on a property reclamation tour across the state. It’s estimated the state of Kansas has $400-million in unclaimed assets. In the city of Pittsburg – it’s $3-million.
Lynn Rogers, Kansas State Treasurer, said, “If they spend it at a local store, that owner is going to then spend it somewhere else in the local community and so it just keeps circulating and circulating, so it keeps growing the economy.”
