Brian Moline, a former chairman of the
Kansas Corporation Commission and former Wichita state legislator,
is dead after suffering a massive stroke last week.

Moline was 68. He died Friday.

In his role as utility regulator, Moline helped investigate the
financial dealings of Westar Energy Inc. That investigation that
led to the firing and federal prosecution of the company's
then-chief executive, David Wittig.

As a lawyer he was known for his commitment to public-interest
law. He founded Kansas Legal Services, which provides legal aid to
the poor.

Moline also supported the so-called Cold Weather Rule that
protects the poor from having their utilities disconnected during
the winter.
