Wouldn't the state save some taxpayer money by having this on line? I mean they could hold it in Topeka and with tweet-email and such take questions without all the travel costs. Let's start thinking about stuff like that Mr. AG

It is online, but it is the AG's responsibility to make sure all public officials are adhering to the law. If the public, in general, is educated about this law, the less public officials will break this law. Do you really think some of the city councils, school boards, county commissions, library boards go by the letter of the law? The answer is no. We should know what they are spending our dollars on and they should not revert back to back door methods to spend them. I agree with the AG's trying to educate the public.

If it is online, why does the ag have to travel?

from the article:

The schedule for the sessions is a follows:

* July 18 - Emporia Civic Auditorium, 111 E. 6th Ave.
9 a.m.-12 p.m.
* July 19 - Kansas City Public Library, 635 Minnesota Ave.
9 a.m.-12 p.m.
* July 19 - Topeka Memorial Hall Auditorium, 120 S.W. 10th Ave.
2 p.m.-5 p.m.
* July 21 - Hays Public Library, 1205 Main St.
9 a.m.-12 p.m.
* July 22 - Independence Public Library, 220 E. Maple St.
9 a.m.-12 p.m.

You are correct, some may not follow the law. Do you think those people would go to these training sessions in the first place? Let's have a follow up on this story and see how many showed up for the "training Sessions" and the cost per person that it cost for the travel and other expenses.
