TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - Kansas lawmakers have hit a new snag in their negotiations on tax issues.
House Republican negotiators Wednesday rejected a proposal from GOP senators to impose a lower sales tax on groceries than on other consumer goods.
The negotiators weren't sure when they'd resume talks.
The latest plan from Republican senators would set the sales tax on groceries at 5.7 percent in July while taxing other items at 6.25 percent.
The current 6.3 percent tax is scheduled by law to fall to 5.7 percent in July.
Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and GOP senators want to cancel most or all of the scheduled decline to raise revenue so that the state can cut income taxes. House Republicans have proposed dropping the sales tax to 6 percent.
