Kansas Bill to Require Public Release of Judicial Applicants

A bill was filed to require public release of names of those applying for position on the Kansas Court of Appeals, the Lawrence Journal World reports.   Governor "Brownback declined to make the applicants' names public, saying it would hurt the chances of getting qualified individuals to apply." 

I don't know why there have to be formal applications at all.  Does anyone ask the president who applied for a US Supreme Court vacancy or to be secretary of state?
