TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Former Gov. John Carlin is reappointed to the state board charged with nurturing the state's bioscience
industry.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius announced that she is giving Carlin a four-year term on the Kansas Bioscience Authority.

She appointed him in July 2006 to fill another member's unexpired term. The state created the authority in 2004.

Carlin was governor from 1979 to 1987, after he had served two years as speaker of the Kansas House. Both he and Sebelius are Democrats.

He ran unsuccessfully for governor again in 1990 and for Congress in 1994. He spent a decade in Washington as national archivist before returning to Kansas.
