Kansas Senate Cancels Tax Bill Debate

At the last minute, the Kansas Senate cancelled debate on a tax bill scheduled for Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce says senators are still working on amendments that will be offered during the debate. He says they don’t want to rush the process.

“It’s better to take a step back and do it right the first time as opposed to come back to the floor with two or three bills later on. That’s just going to drag it out longer,” says Bruce.
The bill would raise sales, cigarette and gasoline taxes to fill a $400 million budget hole. It would also temporarily suspend a business income tax exemption for two years and replace it with a tax credit based on the total payroll of a business.
Lawmakers have wrapped up their work for this week and will return to Topeka on Tuesday.
