TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas' attorney general is asking administrators of the Republican River Compact to make the latest dispute with Nebraska over water usage a "fast-track issue."

Attorney General Stephen Six Friday asked compact administrators to address Kansas' concerns within the next 30 days. The state says
Nebraska is failing to comply with court-mandated water usage.

Earlier this week, Six said that he was likely to file new arguments with the U.S. Supreme Court within eight months over the compact.

Kansas sued Nebraska and Colorado over the river in 1998, alleging that it was not getting the water it was due. In 2003, the Supreme Court approved a settlement among the three states.
