Brownback Closes Offices Ahead of Winter Storm

KSAL StaffFebruary 3, 2014

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has ordered state offices in the Topeka area to remain closed Tuesday and the Legislature has canceled its meetings because of an impending winter storm.

Brownback said Monday that he’s closing state offices in Shawnee County to keep roads as clear as possible of traffic once the storm hits. The National Weather Service is predicting up to 10 inches of snow and wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour in some areas.

Brownback said during a news conference that many workers could get to their offices safely Tuesday morning but have trouble returning home later.

He said state agencies will have the discretion to close offices outside Shawnee County.

The governor’s announcement prompted House and Senate leaders to cancel lawmakers’ business.
