Legislature ends spring break Monday

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – State lawmakers are headed back to work Monday.

The state legislature will reconvene following a spring break.

KSNT News Political Analyst, Dr. Bob Beatty, said the group is likely to tackle an increase in sales tax – as they continue their efforts to close a nearly $350 million budget shortfall.

Beatty said, “a number of legislators…including democrats, aren’t too happy about a possible sales tax increase.” Instead, the analyst said those lawmakers would prefer to see a change in tax policy.

State legislators are reportedly frustrated with tax increases being a go to solution for filling budget gaps.

With their return to session, government leaders will also continue to look for solutions to better fund Kansas schools.
