Website Seeks Tips from the Public

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Office of the Repealer has joined a school efficiency task force in setting up a website to gather tips and suggestions from the public.

Secretary of Administration Dennis Taylor announced the repealer’s new site only days after the school efficiency set up its site to take anonymous tips. But the repealer’s site gives people the choice of remaining anonymous or leaving contact information.

Taylor says the goal is to gather reports of potential waste, fraud and abuse within state government.

Gov. Sam Brownback set up the office within the Department of Administration to identify laws and regulations that are burdensome or outdated. Thirty-seven have been repealed.

Brownback created the schools task force last month.
