Gov. Sam Brownback has laid out his priorities for the legislative session. During a speech Tuesday night, Brownback made proposals dealing with taxes, the budget and more.
Brownback has proposed keeping a temporary sales tax increase on the books. Most of the 1 percent sales tax increase was set to expire later this year, but it would stay under Brownback’s plan.
Last year, lawmakers passed a cut to personal and business income taxes, and now Brownback is pushing for a further reduction in personal income tax rates, and eventually, eliminating them altogether.
