Panel Concludes Nuss Investigation

A special legislative panel investigating judicial improprities has wrapped up its work, with two divided opinions.

Says the Capitol-Journal, “The committee was created by House Speaker Doug Mays, R-Topeka, to explore revelations that Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, and Sen. Pete Brungardt, R-Salina, spoke with Justice Lawton Nuss about school funding during a March luncheon in Topeka. That is the time frame in which the Supreme Court was weighing a school finance lawsuit and the Legislature was scrambling to accommodate a court order to increase state appropriations to schools.”

The KC Star runs a story on the Democratic and Republican factions on the committee as well.

In the end, Republicans issued their report, and Democrats issued theirs.
