Top aides say a Kansas prosecutor is preparing to report on his investigation of Governor Sam Brownback's private meetings with state legislators at his official residence.

Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor has been studying whether the meetings at Cedar Crest violated the Kansas meetings law. Aides to the Democratic prosecutor said they expect Taylor to report his findings Tuesday.

Brownback, a Republican, held seven dinner meetings at Cedar Crest in January with members of 13 legislative committees. More than 90 lawmakers were invited, all but one a Republican.

Many of the lawmakers have described the events as social gatherings, and Brownback has said he's confident the open meetings law wasn't violated. But he's also acknowledged that he scheduled them to discuss his legislative agenda.
