LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Former Kansas Budget Director Steve Anderson is going to work for a think tank that advocates tax cuts and lower school funding.
The Lawrence Journal-World (http://is.gd/6I5uab) reports that the certified public accountant will have a part-time consulting role with the Wichita-based Kansas Policy Institute.
KPI President Dave Trabert says Anderson's experience as a CPA and his time in government make him "uniquely qualified to find fiscally responsible solutions in government."
As the state's budget director for the past three years, the 59-year-old Anderson pushed for Brownback's fiscal policies. He resigned last month for personal reasons. Anderson previously worked with Americans for Prosperity, an organization founded by billionaire David Koch. It promotes cuts in taxes, regulations and the size of government.
