Privatization of state services should always be approached in a careful, thoughtful way.
Turning state operations over to the private sector may warrant consideration, but it’s no panacea and has potential to make bad situations even worse when decisions are based more on profit margins than ensuring high-quality services for people in the state.
One area targeted for privatization in recent years in Kansas was prisons. While the state stopped short on that idea, a related and questionable change came in 2014 in a deal with a private company to provide health care to prison inmates.
