Kan. group has 2-day bus tour against income taxes

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas group pushing to eliminate the state income tax plans a two-day, five-city bus tour this week.

Kansans for No Income Tax says its goal is to educate residents about the possibilities for spurring economic growth by eliminating income taxes. President Ashley McMillan, who’s also former executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, says the nonprofit group is funded by private donors.

The bus tour comes as Gov. Sam Brownback is preparing a plan that administration officials have said will provide broad tax relief.

The tour begins at 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Statehouse in Topeka, with stops at noon in Leavenworth and 3 p.m. in Lenexa.

On Saturday, the bus is scheduled to be in Pittsburg at 9 a.m. and in Wichita at 3 p.m.
