Topeka Kansas Gov.-elect Sam Brownback is preparing to appoint the person who will lead a key initiative designed to make Kansas more business-friendly.
Brownback planned a Thursday morning news conference to announce his choice to lead a new office of the repealer. Brownback's transition team says in a statement that the same person will be nominated to serve as the next secretary of administration.
Creating the repealer's office would fulfill a campaign promise from Brownback. He has said it will look for outdated, unnecessary and burdensome laws and regulations to repeal as a way to help the economy grow. But critics have suggested the aim is to free Brownback's key business supporters from regulations they don't like, and they've mocked him for proposing what they see as a new bureaucracy.
