Democrats Start Counter Website Against Education Task Force

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas legislative Democrats have created their own online survey to counter a new website created by Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration.

Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley and House Minority Leader Paul Davis said Monday their site will gather suggestions for finding school spending efficiencies like the governor’s but it will also collect success stories of how schools are operating.

A task force appointed by Brownback is studying ways to promote efficient use of state funding by schools. The task force has a website that accepts anonymous tips and comments from the public about school spending.

Secretary of Administration Dennis Taylor announced last week that the Office of the Repealer will accept anonymous reports of potential waste, fraud and abuse throughout state government on a separate website.
