TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Brownback on Friday announced the appointments of former state Rep. Bill Feuerborn of Garnett, Joseph Bain of Goodland and Zoe Forrester Newton of Sedan to the Board of Regents.

Feuerborn served in the House from 1995 through 2002.

The three will serve through June 2018. Their appointments require state Senate confirmation.

The nine-member board oversees state universities, community colleges and technical colleges. The state spends almost $2.6 billion annually on higher education.

The terms of three regents expired at the end of June. They were Mildred Edwards of Wichita, former state Senate Majority Leader Tim Emert of Independence and former state Rep. Ed McKechnie of Arcadia.
