Gov Talks Taxes, Economic Growth at KU Tonight

Chandler-Lecture-Series-Brownback2012Governor Sam Brownback will talk taxes tonight (MON) during a presentation at the Lied Center on the University of Kansas campus. Brownback’s speech will focus on Kansas tax policy and economic growth. As KPR’s Stephen Koranda tells us, taxes and the economy have been signature issues for the Brownback administration.

The tax bill the governor signed into law earlier this year will cut personal income tax rates and eliminate income taxes for nearly 200,000 businesses in Kansas. Brownback and other supporters of the bill say it will help draw jobs and economic growth to Kansas. Opponents say the tax cut could cause big budget deficits, requiring cuts to public services like education funding. The presentation is the 2012 Anderson Chandler Lecture from the KU School of Business. The speech starts tonight (MON) at 7:00 at the Lied Center in Lawrence. The event is free and open to the public.
