Kansas launches effort to bring expats back home


It's one thing to create new jobs.

It's another to fill them.

"We don't have enough human beings in the state to keep up with the economic growth that we've had," said Toland, who doubles as the state's commerce secretary.

The state's population growth is stagnant and new college graduates are leaving Kansas, two factors that complicate the state's ability filling new jobs.
