I currently represent District 39 in the Kansas House of Representatives. District 39 is located in Shawnee, one of the fastest-growing cities in Kansas. 

Latest News:

The Kansas House recently approved Senate Bill 22, a large tax bill that has been referred to as the "federal windfall tax bill" because it allows Kansans to benefit from last year's federal tax reforms. The bill contains many provisions you should know about. I voted yes on the bill. Read a summary of SB22 and other recent bills here. >

I inform constituents regularly of developments in the legislature through my newsletter and email updates. I encourage you to read my latest legislative reports here and sign up to receive news updates here.


A post-election message from Rep. Donohoe:

Thank you to the voters of District 39! I appreciate your support and look forward to upholding the conservative values you elected me to represent in Topeka, as your 39th District Representative in the Kansas House. Let's keep the lines of communication open -- email me with your thoughts at anytime.  

For those of you across the state, I look forward to meeting you or getting reacquainted. I served in the House for 3 terms (2006-2012) and faithfully promoted lower taxes AND lower spending. Unfortunately, that didn't happen at the same time. So here's what I campaigned on:

Owen Donohoe brings values and financial integrity back to the Kansas Capitol.

Kansas has been through a lot in the last four years -- financial tumult, legislative chaos and threats to our values. It's time for a leader to set a better course for the future of our taxpayers, families, small businesses and most vulnerable citizens. It's time for a leader like Owen Donohoe in the Kansas House of Representatives.

"The legislature has lost its focus on representing the taxpayers," says Rep. Donohoe, explaining why he is seeking office after three successful terms ending in 2012.

"I want to bring the focus of the legislature back to supporting family values and fiscal accountability," Rep. Donohoe explains. "This is what the citizens want – accountability, transparency and a strong foundation of values in our policies."

Things to consider this legislative session: 

How to grow the state economy without raising taxes >

Teachers & students deserve better:
How we can send more dollars to the classrooms >

How my tax expertise can help fix Kansas' budget mess >

Small Businesses Back Donohoe with NFIB Endorsement

The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) has endorsed Owen Donohoe for State Representative in Kansas District 39. 

Donohoe has consistently been endorsed by small business owners (NFIB) and the business community (Kansas Chamber of Commerce), because of his commitment to economic growth, prudent development and low taxes that attract and retain businesses in Kansas.

"Owen Donohoe is committed to support small business and free enterprise," NFIB State Director Dan Murray says. "He's committed to ensuring a common sense regulatory, labor and tax environment that will help small businesses grow and create jobs."
