School Board Group Supports Brownback Tax Plan


Some conservative groups are opposing Governor Sam Brownback’s new tax plan because it includes revenue-raising measures along with additional income tax cuts. But the Kansas Association of School Boards is supporting the plan because it’s aimed at filling a $500 million budget gap caused by last year’s tax cuts. The group’s position surprised Senate Tax Committee Chairman Les Donovan, when he called on KASB lobbyist Mark Tallman to testify at a recent hearing.

One of those revenue components is a proposal to make what was supposed to be a temporary increase in the sales tax permanent. The increase was passed in 2010 to help the state weather the recession.
