KS Senate updates

andy lambertMay 28, 2015
The Kansas Senate has approved a proposal to lower the state’s sales tax on food. The cut proposed by Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley came during a debate on a plan for raising taxes to close a projected $406 million budget shortfall. He proposed a deeper cut than what Republicans were offering.
Kansas senators are debating a plan to raise $496 million during the next fiscal year. The state would raise sales, tobacco and gasoline taxes and suspend an income tax break for business owners. The tax on cigarettes would increase by 50 cents a pack and the gasoline tax would rise by a nickel a gallon.
