Civil Rights Groups Oppose Moving Human Rights Commission

Civil rights groups are opposing a plan to change the Kansas Human Rights Commission. The organization investigates claims of discrimination in areas such as housing and employment. Governor Sam Brownback has proposed moving the commission into the attorney general’s office. Reverend Ben Scott is president of the Topeka NAACP. He has concerns about moving the commission, because attorney general's office is a partisan office run by an elected official.

Brownback says the move will save the state around 200 thousand dollars. Brownback’s office has said the commission will be more effective after the move, because it will have access to the resources in the attorney general’s office. Opponents of the change will rally in Topeka on Saturday.
