Tell KCUR: How Does The State Line Affect Your Life?

As KCUR prepares to spend a months-long examination on issues tied to the state line in the Kansas City metropolitan area, we’re curious about the significance of this north-south border in your world.

Maybe you lost or gained a job when a company headquarters moved across the metro to another state.

Perhaps the state line makes filing taxes more difficult or easier for you. Or crossing the Kansas-Missouri border gets you cheaper gas or sales taxes.

Tell KCUR: How does the state line affect your life?

Tweet us your answers with the #TellKCUR hashtag  or go to our Facebook page and leave your answer in a comment.  

You also can leave us a message at 816-235-2881 or send an email with your answer to social@kcur.org. We’ll share your stories Thursday online and on the air during KCUR’s daily talk show Central Standard, which starts at 10 a.m.

Our incoming reporting on the state line is part of KCUR's Beyond Our Borders project, a yearlong look at how Kansas Citians divide themselves. We spent parts of the spring and summer focusing on Troost Avenue — one of the borders that our audience identified as being among the strongest dividing lines in the metropolitan area. State Line Road was another line.

Tell KCUR is part of an initiative to engage the community and shine a light on your experiences and opinions. We’ll ask a new question every week and then share your feedback on the air and online. Check out our arsenal of questions and your answers
