kssenatechambersKansas Senate chamber

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback's tax cuts and the conservative majorities he now enjoys in the state House and Senate have been picked as 2012's top stories in Kansas.The Associated Press surveyed its newspaper editors and broadcast news directors for their choices. Pushed by the conservative Brownback, Kansas lawmakers approved massive income tax cuts in 2012 that supporters insisted would stimulate the state's economy. Then in August, Republican conservatives ousted moderates in the primaries, paving the way for easy November wins and setting Brownback up with can't-lose majorities for the upcoming legislative session. Other stories getting attention in the survey included the heat wave and drought that gripped the state, the botched rollout of the new computer system for handling driver's licenses, and Kansas State's return to prominence in college football.
