Kansas Bioscience Authority to hire help to respond to investigations

May 10, 2011


— The Kansas Bioscience Authority will hire some help to deal with investigations into its business practices.

The authority’s board on Monday approved hiring temporary accounting and paralegal assistance to respond to requests for information from several sources. The Wichita Eagle reports that the exact amount and type of help will be decided as the investigations continue.

The KBA is being investigated by the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office, a state Senate committee and auditors hired by the board for its own investigation.

The governor’s office and media outlets also are seeking documents from the agency.

The authority has been criticized in recent months for its spending practices and deals it has made.

too bad Kansas would need to lobby so hard to get business here which should tell us something and when these businesses do come they need special deals. wouldn't Kansas be better of focusing on re-localizing our economy and give up on fads? most of these handouts if worthwhile will go to businesses that will be bought out and most likely moved unless offered more sweet treats.

It's a shame that Brownback and Wagle are continuing to waste the KBA's time and money with their politically motivated witch hunt.

Extra staff to work on the cover-up. Paid for by the hard-working taxpayer.

Close the kba now. Return their money to the State's general fund.
