Kansas lawmakers are planning to work into the night (FRI) in hopes that they can wrap up the 2013 session sometime this weekend. Budget and tax issues still divide them. A plan to maintain a higher statewide sales tax to pay for income tax cuts has been the biggest sticking-point. Democrats and some Republicans say the dispute shows it was a mistake to pass such deep income tax cuts last year. Representative  Richard Carlson, chairman of the House Tax Committee, refuses to call that move a mistake, but he acknowledges that “modifications” are needed.

No plan to keep the sales tax hike in place to pay for income tax cuts has yet passed the House.
