Default Kansas governor rescinds order protecting gay state workers

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas will no longer ban discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals and the transgendered in hiring and employment in much of state government because of an action announced Tuesday by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.

Brownback rescinded an executive order issued in August 2007 by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius barring discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The order applied to hiring and employment decisions by agencies under the governor's direct control and required them to create anti-harassment policies as well.

Brownback said Sebelius a Democrat who went on to serve as President Barack Obama's health secretary acted "unilaterally" with her order and that any such changes should be made by the state Legislature. But Brownback, who became governor a little more than four years ago, didn't say why he waited until now to rescind her directive.
