The chairman of the Kansas House Elections Committee says he's disappointed that the Department of Revenue no longer plans to require people to provide proof of legal U.S. residence to renew their driver's licenses.
Olathe Republican Scott Schwab says legislators assumed the driver's license requirement was coming when they enacted a law requiring new voters to provide proof of their U.S. citizenship when registering.
Preparations are underway for tax changes next year. Kansas Department of Revenue staff is working this summer to write the new rules and regulations that will guide the agency as it implements a sweeping series of cuts to the state’s income tax system.
Secretary Nick Jordan says the agency is meeting with accountants and lawyers to discuss the new law and write the policies that will govern how taxes are collected for individuals and businesses.
