Kansas House rejects comprehensive tax reform
“Last November, Kansans elected 56 freshman lawmakers to join veteran policymakers in 2017 and fix the state’s fiscal problems. Today, on the fifth anniversary of the 2012 tax cuts, the Kansas House rejected CCR for Senate Bill 30, which would have gutted the Governor’s signature tax policy and taken a significant step forward in restoring much needed revenue to the state. With key components of comprehensive tax reform, CCR for SB 30 would have ended the “March to Zero,” repealed the LLC loophole, and restored a third income tax bracket – the policy reforms Rise Up, Kansas has been fighting for.
