Topeka A spokesman says a northeast Kansas prosecutor's investigation into private meetings of Republican legislators with Gov. Sam Brownback won't be finished until the end of the month.
Lee McGowan, chief of staff to Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor, said Tuesday that staff still must interview a few lawmakers and members of the governor's staff.
McGowan said interviews won't be completed until the Legislature returns from a break April 25.
Brownback, a Republican, had seven meetings in January with GOP members of 13 legislative committees. Taylor, a Democrat, began his investigation in February.
Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene (shuh-REEN') Jones-Sontag says the governor is confident the gatherings didn't violate the Kansas Open Meetings Act.
Many lawmakers who attended the events said they were social gatherings, not business meetings.
