The following statement comes from House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs in response to Sam Brownback's rescinding ant-discrimination protections for LGBT state workers:

“By focusing on divisive social issues, Brownback is playing to his base and attempting to distract from the serious budget crisis facing our state. The bottom line is this: All Kansans deserve to be treated fairly and with respect and no Kansan should be denied equal protection under the law.”
