KS Joins Prairie Chicken Lawsuit

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback says Kansas will join Oklahoma in suing the federal government over the addition of the lesser prairie chicken to its list of threatened species. Brownback announced his state's response on yesterday (FRI) during a news conference.

Voting Requirement Decision Appealed

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Voting rights groups are appealing a judge's decision requiring federal election officials to help Kansas and Arizona enforce state laws requiring new voters to document their U.S. citizenship.

The judge ordered the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to immediately modify a national voter registration form to add special instructions requiring proof-of-citizenship for Kansas and Arizona residents.
