TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Hundreds of state workers have been shuffled into new positions at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and other agencies.  The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that documents show Governor Sam Brownback ordered the moves based on a study the effected workers haven't seen. Kansas Organization of State Employees director Rebecca Proctor says that without seeing the study, workers are left in the dark.  An executive directive signed last week by Brownback abolishes 18 job classifications and replaces them with 16 new classifications. The positions affected range from environmental technicians to geologists and program services managers.  KDHE spokeswoman Sara Belfry says the changes were made in response to a study by the Department of Administration over the past two years to determine whether changes to job classifications were necessary.
