TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican lawmakers narrowed their proposal to cut Kansas’ income taxes before it cleared its first legislative hurdle.
A GOP leader said Wednesday that they’ll put off further action at least a short while to consider how the plan might affect the next state budget.
The Republican-controlled Senate tax committee endorsed a bill reducing income taxes by about $170 million during the budget year that begins July 1.
The measure would provide relief to individuals and businesses paying more in state income taxes because of changes in federal tax laws in 2017.
The bill initially would have provided $329 million in relief during the next budget year.
