Kansas governor asks secretary of health and environment to resign
By KAREN DILLON
The Kansas City Star

Roderick Bremby, the Kansas official who blocked a proposed coal plant, has declined to move from his office and take the position of cabinet transition director, the governor said today.

Gov. Mark Parkinson offered Bremby, the states top environmental chief, a deal this week: Step down and then take the position of cabinet transition director.

Whether Bremby has resigned as secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment or has been fired was still unclear this afternoon.

All cabinet secretaries serve at the pleasure of the Governor, Amy Jordan Wooden, Parkinsons spokeswoman, said in an email. It was Governor Parkinsons wish that Rod Bremby take on an important transition role over the next few months, that of Cabinet Transition Director.

Mr. Bremby declined that position, she wrote.

And then there's this...
Bemby drew the attention of the nation in 2007 as the first state regulator to reject an air quality permit for a coal plant, declaring carbon dioxide emissions a public health risk. The Legislature later change the laws to allow the coal plant to be built.

1. Once a republican, always a republican
Never was a Parkinson fan. I know that puts me in the minority but this move didn't surprise me in the least.
