Kansas governor closes curtain on arts commission

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback signed an executive reorganization Monday order to abolish the Kansas Arts Commission.  All powers and responsibilities have been transferred to the Kansas Historical Society.

Brownback argues the order will save the state about $600,000 in the next fiscal year.

The Kansas Arts Foundation, which will support the arts as a private organization, will replace the commission.  Brownback's executive reorganization order is scheduled to take effect July 1.
