Nonprofit calls for repeal of Brownback’s tax cuts

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — Groups that have been critical of Governor Sam Brownback’s income tax cuts are calling on Kansas legislators to repeal all of them.

The nonprofit Kansas Center for Economic Growth said today that its proposal could raise $1 billion dollars a year and permanently fix the state’s budget problems.

The state has struggled to balance its budget since the income tax cuts were enacted in 2012 and 2013 at Brownback’s urging in an attempt to stimulate the economy.

Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley called the groups “desperate to grow the government.”
