Lawmakers Resume Work On Tax Plan, Budget

KSAL StaffMay 28, 2013

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas legislators are going back to work on tax cuts and the budget, still uncertain when they’ll wrap up their annual session.

House and Senate negotiators have agreed on a plan to cut personal income taxes to follow up on massive reductions approved last year. The proposal sets the sales tax at 6 percent in July to raise additional revenues to prevent budget shortfalls.

The House would vote first on the plan, but its leaders haven’t announced when the chamber will take up the measure.

A separate team of negotiators has agreed on a proposed $14.5 billion budget for each of the next two fiscal years, starting in July. Votes have not been set in either chamber.

Tuesday marks the 95th day of the legislature’s session.
