The wind power industry, free-market business groups, the governor and lawmakers have unveiled a compromise to overhaul the Kansas renewable energy standard. As Stephen Koranda reports, it would remove the mandate that 20 percent of power generation come from renewable sources and replace it with a voluntary goal.
Some advocacy groups get something they’ve wanted, eliminating the mandate for renewable energy. Mike O’Neal is president and CEO of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce.
A task force at the University of Kansas is recommending changes in how the school handles sexual assaults and rape on campus.
The suggested changes include requiring all freshmen, including fraternity members, to live in residence halls.
Other suggestions include: creating an on-campus center for sexual assault prevention and education and clarifying that the university can discipline students for sexual violence that occurs off campus if the victim is also a student.
The task force report was released Friday and includes 27 recommendations.
