TOPEKA – (September 8, 2016) – The Kansas Attorney General’s office and Kansas Bureau of Investigation will provide Kansans with consumer protection and public safety information at the Kansas State Fair, Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.
“Providing Kansans information to help avoid scams and ripoffs and to improve the safety of their families is key to our mission,” Schmidt said. “We will once again share this important information at our fair booth.”
The booth will be in the Meadowlark Building on the fairgrounds in Hutchinson. Staff from the Attorney General’s Office and KBI will be available throughout the fair to answer questions.
Attorney General Schmidt will be at the fair on Saturday, September 17, and available at the booth from 10 a.m. to noon to answer questions and listen to Kansans’ concerns. Because September 17 is Constitution Day and Citizenship Day and the 229th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787, the attorney general also will give away pocket Constitutions to Kansans who visit the booth that day.
The Kansas State Fair opens Friday, September 9, and runs through Sunday, September 18.
