Brownback Wants to Stay the Course on Kansas Business Tax Cuts

As Kansas lawmakers look for ways to fill the budget hole, Governor Sam Brownback says he wants the Legislature to keep tax breaks for businesses in place. Both the House and Senate are considering plans to roll back tax cuts on business income. And while the governor doesn't like that idea, he's not threatening to veto any bills that trim back those tax breaks.  

“These are lots of delicate negotiations and talks and it’s best that people keep talking instead of threatening one way or the other,” says Brownback.
Brownback says he’s pushing for lawmakers to consider taxes based on consumption. He has proposed hiking the fees on alcohol and tobacco. Lawmakers are also considering an increase in the state sales tax.
