TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Pressure from the Legislature continues to build on the state board regulating doctors to fire some of its staff.

The House has adopted a resolution calling on the Board of Healing Arts to make changes promptly to restore public confidence in its oversight. The action came on an unanimous voice vote.

The Senate adopted a similar resolution last week, also unanimously.

The Senate's measure called specifically for personnel changes. The House's did not. But its sponsor, Representative Jeff Colyer, an Overland Park Republican, said staff changes need to occur. Like many senators, he believe the board should fire its executive director and chief counsel.

Governor Kathleen Sebelius says she has confidence in the board and
its staff.
