Kansas Budget Director Resigns

Gov. Sam Brownback says he's accepted the resignation of state Budget Director Steve Anderson. The governor commended his work and diligence.

Anderson will leave his office, effective the end of this month. He says he's taking more time with his wife and sons.

Anderson is a certified public accountant and managing partner of Anderson, Reichert and Anderson, LLC. The governor named him budget director in late 2010. As a member of the Governor's Economic Growth Team, he worked to strengthen the economy and create jobs for Kansans.

Policy Director Jon Hummel will serve as interim budget director until the governor names a permanent replacement.
