Kansas Lawmakers Make New Push to Lower Grocery Taxes, Corporate Tax Bills

A sweeping plan that would affect how much Kansans pay for groceries and what corporations owe in taxes may soon head to Gov. Laura Kelly, who vetoed a similar bill earlier this year.

Under it, the state is projected to take in $245 million less in revenue over the next three years. The House is expected to debate the bill soon, after the Senate approved it 27-13 on Thursday.

Although the new bill is different in some ways from the vetoed one, Democrats continue to condemn it as a corporate handout and Republicans counter that it returns to taxpayers money the state shouldn’t be collecting.
