TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A state legislator from western Kansas is resigning later this month, saying he wants to spend more time with his family and can’t juggle legislative duties with a growing business.
Rep. Brian Weber said Thursday that he’ll step down after the Legislature’s formal adjournment ceremony June 20. The Dodge City Republican has served in the House since 2011.
The 30-year-old Weber is the co-owner of a family heating and air conditioning business and said he plans to move to Garden City, where it has its main office.
He and his wife have a daughter who will be a year old on June 16.
Weber serves as chairman of a House Appropriations subcommittee on social services spending and as vice chairman of its Health and Human Services Committee.
