AFP-Kansas commends Kansas House on fiscally responsible spending plan

March 19, 2012

TOPEKA, KAN. – The Kansas chapter of the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity applauds the Kansas House of Representatives’ passage of a fiscally responsible budget for FY 2013.

“Americans for Prosperity-Kansas applauds the Kansas House of Representatives today for passing a fiscal year 2013 budget that reduces state general fund spending from the previous fiscal year,” said AFP-Kansas state director Derrick Sontag. “The House budget contains three key components found in a fiscally responsible budget: expenditures do not exceed revenues, the budget is structurally balanced, and it provides a healthy ending balance.”

Sontag said the remaining surplus could be used, in part, for much-needed tax relief for Kansans.

“An ending balance that leaves room for tax relief is good news for all Kansans,” he said. “Although we are not yet to the point of having a limited but efficient state government, consistently crafting budgets such as this one will get us to that point down the road. This budget is certainly a step in the right direction.”

The leadership of the Kansas House and the House Appropriations Committee members should also be applauded for their role in the spending plan’s passage, Sontag noted.

“Of course, many steps led to today’s passage of this budget bill,” he said. “We commend House leadership and the members of the appropriations committee for guiding this fiscally sound budget through the committee process and to the full chamber for debate and ultimate passage.”
