Can KS Cut Taxes and Still Provide Services?

KS STATEHOUSE - WINTERThe Kansas Statehouse in winter.

Even though Kansas substantially cut state income taxes last year, Governor Sam Brownback says he wants to cut them even further -- eventually eliminating them altogether. He said so Tuesday night, during his State of the State speech.

But many political observers wonder whether it's really possible to keep cutting taxes while protecting education funding and other state services. Burdett Loomis is a political science professor at the University of Kansas.

Legislative researchers say the existing, lower tax rates have created a projected revenue shortfall of $267 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
