TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - An oral history archive of Republican and Democratic legislative leaders is in the works in Kansas.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1L4al6v ) reports that former Kansas Sen. Robert Storey is among 10 former Kansas legislators to participate in a pilot project. Storey, now a Topeka attorney, shared his thoughts about the current batch of lawmakers Tuesday at the Capitol. He says they appear to lack the dedication to dig deeply into issues.

Also participating is Rochelle Chronister, the first woman to chair the House budget committee and who was assistant majority leader for three years. She says compromise “is not a dirty word” and “is the way you accomplish things for people.”

The Kansas Humanities Council and Shawnee County Historical Society are sponsoring the project. Interviews are recorded, transcribed and archived.
