Gov Drops Plan to Move Human Rights Commission

Governor Sam Brownback has dropped his proposal to have the state attorney general’s office oversee the Kansas Human Rights Commission. Brownback has said the move would save around 230 thousand dollars. The commission offered a compromise - the organization would stay independent, but find ways to trim the 230 thousand dollars Brownback wanted from its 1.8 million dollar budget. Sherriene Jones-Sontag is the governor’s spokesperson.

Critics were concerned that the commission would not be independent if it were part of a partisan office run by an elected official.
