TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ An investigation into private dinner meetings between Kansas legislators and Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is winding down.
A spokesman for Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor said the office has finished interviewing legislators for an investigation into whether dinners at the governor's mansion violated the Kansas Open Meetings Act.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that spokesman Lee McGowan says he believed investigators were currently talking to some of the governor's staff.
Brownback hosted Republican members of 13 committees at seven dinners at his official residence during January.
The governor has said he's confident the open meetings law wasn't violated. The law prohibits a majority of a legislative body from discussing government business without giving the public notice or access to the meetings.
