Governor Sam Brownback is urging lawmakers to complete work on an economic development bill he proposed. It would increase tax breaks for businesses that invest in Kansas. Brownback hopes lawmakers will negotiate differences between two versions of the bill before a deadline this week.
Another bill Brownback proposed would give tax breaks to people moving to rural areas of Kansas. The legislation, which Brownback pitched during his campaign for governor, creates Rural Opportunity Zones.
That bill has passed both chambers and is awaiting Brownback’s signature.
