Kansas Senator apologizes over women's dress code comments

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kansas lawmaker has apologized for a dress code for women in the Kansas State House Tuesday night. 

The chair of the senate committee on ethics and elections created the new rules, which stated anyone speaking to the committee must be dressed professionally. However, it specifically required women to not wear low-cut necklines or mini-skirts.

The committee chair -- Mitch Holmes -- came under fire after he said he left out men because they already knew how to dress professionally.

He later issued an apology and decided to get rid of the guidelines.
