Kansas Gov.-elect Sam Brownback is preparing
to fill two key Cabinet jobs.
?�?�?�?� Brownback has a Monday afternoon news conference planned to
announce his appointments for secretary of social and
rehabilitation services and secretary of health and environment.
?�?�?�?� The Republican governor-elect takes office Jan. 10 and hopes to
finish naming his Cabinet this week.
?�?�?�?� Cabinet secretaries must be confirmed by the state Senate.
?�?�?�?� The Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services has about
6,300 employees and operates six hospitals for the developmentally
disabled and mentally ill. Its budget exceeds $1.7 billion.
?�?�?�?� The Department of Health and Environment has a budget of $240

power plant in southwest Kansas.
