Kansas governor demands state energy chief's resignation

Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson asked the state's top environmental chief, Roderick Bremby, to take a different job, but Bremby has refused. Bemby drew the attention of the nation in 2007 as the first state regulator to reject an air quality permit for a coal plant, declaring carbon dioxide emissions a public health risk. His ruling later was overturned by the Legislature.
