Good for the Wichita-area legislative delegation for making the case to a conference committee Thursday for extending Wichita’s ability to use sales tax and revenue bonds for WaterWalk and the river corridor improvements. Both chambers still must vote on it, perhaps today, but the measure allows Wichita a specific extension for STAR bonds, which admittedly have been abused elsewhere in the state. City Hall officials said that without action, this top priority for downtown Wichita would be at risk. Now that progress is so visible both on WaterWalk work and the riverfront upgrade, this is no time for failure.
