TOPEKA – Gov. Sam Brownback signed an executive order Monday moving the Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns from the Kansas Department of Commerce to the governor’s office. Brownback said it’s important that Kansans with disabilities have a direct line to the governor’s office so their concerns are heard. The group will join other commissions in the governor’s office, including the Kansas African-American Affairs Commission and the Kansas Hispanic and Latino-American Affairs Commission. The KCDC works to ensure Kansans with disabilities have equal access to job opportunities and living arrangements outside of institutions. The Legislature has 60 days to reject the order. If lawmakers do not act, the order becomes law on July 1.
