Topeka — Members of the Douglas County delegation to the Kansas House scored among the best and worst in a rating from a higher education advocacy group.
Five legislators received an A or better, while two received F's, from the Citizens for Higher Education.
Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, got an A-plus. Reps. Barbara Ballard and Paul Davis, both Lawrence Democrats, and Ann Mah, a Topeka Democrat whose district includes a portion of southwest Douglas County, received A's. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin, scored A-minus.
Reps. Anthony Brown, R-Eudora, and Joe Humerickhouse, R-Osage City, got F's.
Grades were based on House votes in 2005 and 2006, including funding to universities, cuts to universities, stem cell research, eliminating burdensome regulations, providing scholarships, and establishing a savings program for low-income families to send their children to college.
