Kansas Lawmakers Will Reconvene to Resolve Tax Law Conflict

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators aren't quite done with their work for the year because they inadvertently enacted two conflicting versions of a new law aimed at holding down local property taxes. House Speaker Ray Merrick's office said Friday that legislators will reconvene June 26 to pass a bill addressing the problem. Spokeswoman Rachel Whitten described it as a technical fix. Legislators already were scheduled to have a brief adjournment ceremony that day. The problem stems from a new law limiting the authority of cities and counties to spend increases in property tax revenues without getting voters' approval. Lawmakers intended the limits to take effect in 2018. They passed two bills raising taxes to balance the budget. One measure said the limits on property taxes would start in July and the other, in 2018.
