Kansas views on KCC chairman, online sales tax, concealed-carry, plastic-gun ban, Sporting KC

KCC – Gov. Sam Brownback expects to announce early next year who will succeed Mark Sievers as chairman of the Kansas Corporation Commission. The governor would do well to appoint someone who has a healthy respect for the Kansas Open Meetings Act and a conviction that government should be transparent when conducting the public’s business. Sievers had neither, and his early departure gives Brownback an opportunity to place someone in charge who can reassure Kansans the KCC is interested in serving the state, its regulated utilities and consumers.
