Just a quick note on this Monday morning of the final week of the legislative session in which the House and Senate still appear to be far apart in coming to an agreement on the Fiscal Year 2012 budget.
First the good news.
Kansas Bioscience Authority (KBA) C.E.O. Tom Thornton resigned under pressure today.
Much credit goes to Gov. Sam Brownback and especially Sen. Susan Wagle who brought to public attention a slew of conflict of interest and other inappropriate behavior by Thornton and others at the KBA.
It is of little surprise the Johnson County District Attorneys office is investigating the KBA.
Wagle is totally vindicated and Kansas taxpayers owe her a big debt of gratitude.
Now the bad news.
