Brownback to announce his pick for the Office of Administration

TOPEKA – Gov.-elect Sen. Sam Brownback will announce his pick for secretary of administration on Thursday morning.

The nominee will also oversee the Office of the Repealer, which Brownback promised to create during his campaign. The office will recommend eliminating statues and regulations that have “out-lived their original function, are in conflict with one another, or simply do not make sense.”

The Kansas Department of Administration oversees the state budget, state buildings — including those under lease — and other activities such as printing, computer services and purchasing.

The nominee must be confirmed by the Kansas Senate.
