Two Separate Groups to Study KS Tax Policy

There will soon be two separate groups looking at ways to make the Kansas tax system more business friendly. But the two organizations are different, because one of them is doing business behind closed doors. Governor Sam Brownback put together a group headed by Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan. A couple of the group’s members have been named, but a spokesperson for Jordan said the department wouldn’t comment on who is on the committee or who has been consulted. Senate President Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican, has announced he’ll also create a committee to study tax proposals, and he says the process will be transparent.

Morris says the committee will be made up of senators and representatives from business, the agriculture industry and education. Morris says he wants a variety of perspectives studying the issue.

Governor Brownback has said his group’s tax plan will be released soon. The Senate tax study group will start meeting in January.
