Kansas House Postpones Debate on Tax-Reduction Bill

khi logo520x275UPDATE - Republican leaders in the Kansas House have delayed debate on a big tax-reduction bill until tomorrow (TUE) morning. That debate had been scheduled for today (MON). The bill would reduce income tax rates and put a lid on how much the state could increase spending each year. The proposed 2 percent spending lid is controversial. But House Speaker Mike O’Neal says an attempt will be made to raise that cap -- slightly -- to gain more votes.

 Conservative Republicans say the combination of tax cuts and spending limits will spur economic growth. Democrats and many moderate Republicans believe it will create a permanent budget crisis and force an increase in local property taxes.
