“There are things we can do to lower the state tax burden in a way that is fair and fiscally responsible, but this tax plan is not the answer. This tax plan will permanently impede our ability to properly fund public schools and that is not what Kansans want. We simply cannot afford eliminate half of our revenue and meet all of our obligations schoolchildren, the disabled, and those who depend upon essential state services.”

-House Democratic Leader Paul Davis, Topeka
