TOPEKA, Kansas — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed legislation Thursday that is likely to shrink the civil service system for state workers, and lawmakers gave final approval to two major energy bills. One bill would repeal a renewable energy requirement for the state's utilities as part of a deal with wind energy companies to avoid a new tax. The other measure requires legislators to sign off on any plan from the state to comply with a new federal rule curbing carbon emissions from power plants. (The Associated Press)
