Kan. governor to discuss response to winter storm

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback has scheduled a Statehouse news conference to discuss the state's response to the winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of Kansas.

Brownback will be joined at Thursday morning's conference by Transportation Secretary Mike King, Deputy Emergency Management Director Angee Morgan and Highway Patrol Maj. John Eichkorn (EYE'-korn).

The storm prompted Brownback to close state offices in Shawnee County on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Legislature also canceled all of its meetings for those two days.
