Associated Press - April 5, 2017 10:07 am

Top Republican legislators are negotiating with Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback over raising taxes as they consider proposals for a flat personal income tax.

The Republican governor met Tuesday with GOP leaders.

The talks came after a Senate committee approved a bill that would move the state to a single personal income tax rate of 4.6 percent while raising new revenue to fix budget problems.
