LAWRENCE, Kansas – A student seeking records about the financial relationship between the University of Kansas and the Koch brothers has raised the $1,800 the school required to fulfill her request.
Schuyler Kraus, president of the Students for a Sustainable Future, filed the Kansas open records request last month. She wants to know about the financial relationship between Art Hall, the executive director of the university’s Center for Applied Economics, and billionaires Charles and David Koch.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1prTOdt ) that the university told Kraus it would cost $1,800 to provide the information because the request covered more than 10 years and would require the work of several offices.
The American Association of University Professors donated $1,000 to Kraus and other donations helped her raise the rest of the money.
