Americans for Prosperity-Kansas statement on House action to approve tax relief
TOPEKA, KAN. – The Kansas chapter of the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity (AFP) released the following statement in response to today’s tax vote in the House:
“Today’s vote on a much-needed tax reform bill will provide an immediate boost to Kansas families and businesses,” said AFP-Kansas state director Derrick Sontag. “The approved tax bill cuts the income tax for Kansas families and small businesses, which is certainly good news for taxpayers.
“The current leadership of the state Senate helped lead Kansas down a path of economic destruction as indicated by the past decade being one of lost private sector jobs, stagnant population growth, and taxpayers fleeing to other states.
“Yet in spite of all the evidence pointing to the failure of the tax and spend approach, the actions of Senate leadership today indicated that they wanted more of the same.”
“Today’s action by a majority of the House led by leadership was a step in the right direction to reverse the failed economic policies of the past. We applaud the leaders of the Kansas House for this bold move toward tax relief.”
