Kansas Slashes Revenue Estimates

Kansas budget officials dropped their projection on how much money the state will take in in the next 16 months.

The Consensus Revenue Estimating group reduced their project by 228.6 million.
That could put the state in a budget hole, based on the state budget Kansas lawmakers passed earlier this year.

A statement from Governor Sam Brownback’s office says any solution in the soon-to-start wrap-up session of lawmakers will not include a tax increase on small business or any other Kansas.

The budget shortfall will be a major topic when lawmakers return to Topeka next week for what is supposed to be a brief wrap-up session.
