Kansas Lawmakers Hoping to Resume Tax Negotiations
Legislators were reconvening today at the Statehouse after a monthlong spring break to wrap up its business for the year. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback wants the GOP-dominated Legislature to follow up on massive personal income tax cuts enacted last year.
But three senators and three House members must resolve differences between the two chambers for a bill to pass.
The Senate passed a bill containing Brownback’s plan for more income tax cuts over the next four years and his proposal to cancel a decrease in the sales tax scheduled by law for July.
The GOP-controlled House approved a measure to allow the sales tax to drop, with less aggressive income tax cuts.
