Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is scheduled to tour areas of the state hit hard by drought.

The governor's office says Brownback will be stopping in Saline County on Tuesday and then will be in Neosho and Labette counties on Wednesday. Brownback will tour northwest Kansas next week.

Brownback will be joined by Tracy Streeter, director of the Kansas Water Office, and Dale Rodman, state agriculture director.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared 82 counties in Kansas federal disaster areas because of the ongoing dry conditions.
