House Democratic Leader Tom Burroughs issues statement on Senate Ways and Means proposal for across the board cuts totaling $400 million:

“Such radical cuts are shortsighted and put the core functions of government at great risk. Republican leadership is grasping at straws.

“What’s being proposed isn’t about what’s best for Kansans or making sound public policy.

“Instead, they’re looking for anything that will garner 63 votes in the House, 21 votes in the Senate, and the governor would be willing to sign.

“The path to future prosperity begins with a tax policy that is responsible, equitable, and sustainable and is paired with a budget that works for everyone.”
