The following statement comes from Kansas Center for Economic Growth Executive Director Annie McKay:

“This tax package is deeply disappointing and makes bad tax policy even worse. It does nothing to fix the problem that created the budget crisis and it protects the fundamental inequalities of Gov. Brownback’s 2012 tax plan. Over 330,000 Kansas businesses will continue to pay no income tax at all while hardworking Kansas families absorb their fourth tax increase in six years. Lawmakers promised Kansans ‘pro-growth’ tax policy, but all this legislation will grow is the number of families struggling to make ends meet.”
