New Kansas Governor Calls For A Change In Tone


    One day after becoming the new Kansas governor, Jeff Colyer calls for a change in tone at the Statehouse.
    In a news conference Thursday, Colyer said he'll outline measures next week to combat sexual harassment and improve transparency in state government.
    Colyer said he plans to issue an executive order on harassment but did not provide further details.
    Top lawmakers plan to revise the Legislature's policy on sexual harassment, which has been in place since 1994. They've also had sexual harassment training sessions for legislators, staff and interns.
    Legislators also are pursuing open-government measures. Colyer said he will work with them and have measures of his own.
    Colyer took office Wednesday after fellow Republican and former Governor Sam Brownback resigned to become U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom. Colyer had been lieutenant governor.
