Dueling Rallies at Statehouse for Supporters, Opponents of Gov's Tax Plan
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback's plan to cut income and business taxes is getting both praise and criticism in Topeka. Supporters and opponents of the plan sounded off today (WED) at a pair of Statehouse rallies. Terry Forsyth, head of the Working Kansas Alliance, says the governor should focus more on legislation designed to directly grow jobs and improve the economy. Forsyth says Brownback's tax proposal would actually increase taxes paid by low-wage workers.
At a rally later in the day, Governor Brownback said his proposal will create a climate for job growth, which will help all Kansans.
A House committee is holding three days of hearings this week on the governor’s tax plan.
