TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Family Policy Council says it has hired a Republican lawmaker from Wichita as its new executive director.

However, the lawmaker, Rep. Steve Brunk, said Friday that negotiations are continuing and nothing about his possible new job will be officially announced until January.

The council is an advocacy group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage. Brunk is chairman of the House Federal and State Affairs Committee, which considers several topics, including abortion, guns and First Amendment issues.

The family council’s chairman, Dennis Blick, announced Brunk’s hiring in a fundraising letter.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1Y38hDX ) if Brunk lobbies for the council, he would be required to resign his House position. But Brunk said he would not be a lobbyist for the group and would not necessarily have to resign.
