TOPEKA – Yesterday morning Governor Sam Brownback told reporters he supported eliminating the renewable energy standards (RPS), but by late afternoon his office backtracked, issuing a statement saying just the opposite. This quick position flip-flop is not new for Gov. Brownback.
“In a rare moment of candor, the governor clearly supported the phase out of the RPS,” said Joan Wagnon, KDP Chair. “Yet after wind advocates voiced outrage, Sam Brownback flip-flopped in an attempt at damage control.”
