TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas House member has been released from a subpoena issued by a district attorney investigating private meetings of lawmakers with Gov. Sam Brownback.
Olathe (oh-LAY'-thuh) Republican Scott Schwab says he was released Monday after signing a statement saying he didn't attend a private dinner in January at Cedar Crest, the governor's residence.
A spokesman for Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor confirmed that Schwab no longer faces the subpoena.
Taylor, a Democrat, is investigating seven private meetings the Republican governor had with lawmakers. Brownback invited more than 90 lawmakers, all but one a Republican, grouping them by their memberships on 13 committees.
Brownback has said he's confident the gatherings did not violate the Kansas Open Meetings Act.
Schwab said he's still upset about being subpoenaed.
