Delegation backs Brownback on state income taxes

The four members of the Kansas congressional delegation who previously served in the Legislature are supportive of Gov. Sam Brownback’s push to cut state income taxes and reduce government, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., said that Kansas needed to be more like Texas. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, said that Kansas also has to compete with low-cost countries. Reps. Kevin Yoder, R-Overland Park, and Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, contrasted Brownback’s approach to President Obama’s call for higher taxes. “Kansas has a better pathway,” Yoder said.
