Senators Meeting Today to Discuss State Budget

The Kansas Center for Economic Growth said the state should eliminate its tax cuts enacted in 2012 and 2013.

The group is blaming the cuts for an estimated $290 million hole in the state budget.

Brownback’s spokeswoman said reversing an income tax break for business owners would not help Kansas maintain a pro-growth environment.

Brownback gave lawmakers alternative options to address the deficit, including cuts to higher education, early childhood programs and the state DOT.

State lawmakers came back to work from a month-long break on Wednesday to begin tackling the budget and other issues. They are meeting today to discuss further action.
