TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) After a one-day delay, the Kansas House is ready to debate a Republican plan to cut income taxes.
The measure, which supporters say will improve the Kansas business climate, was originally set for debate Monday but pushed back to Tuesday by other issues.
As written by a GOP-dominated committee, the bill would promise future cuts to individual income taxes as revenues grow, forcing the state to check the annual growth in its spending at 2 percent. The state would phase out taxes on the earnings of thousands of partnerships, sole proprietorships and other small businesses.
The sales tax rate would drop to 5.7 percent from 6.3 percent in July 2013, as scheduled.
Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has made tax change a top priority in 2012.
