AFP-KS Applauds Passage of Tax Plan that Delivers Maximum Savings to Kansans, Calls on Governor to Sign into Law

Jan 18, 2024 by AFP

Topeka, KS—Today, Americans for Prosperity-Kansas (AFP-KS) commended the passage of House Bill 2284, a plan to tackle the rising cost of living by letting hardworking Kansans keep more money in their pockets. As reported by AFP-KS earlier this week, polling shows that the majority of residents agree that a simple, single-rate tax plan is the best way to return the state’s budget surplus to taxpayers.

Elizabeth Patton, AFP-KS State Director, made the following statement:

“Under this compromised single-rate tax bill, a family of four making $40,000 saves four times as much money versus Governor Kelly’s deluded plan. HB 2284, or the Inflation Buster Bill, also costs less and is more sustainable over time. Governor Kelly should put away the petty politicking, sign this bill immediately, and ensure every single Kansan isn’t prevented from getting a pay raise, especially when she already signed one for herself. 

“Two-thirds of Kansans want a simple, single-tax rate. Thankfully, our state legislators came together to pass a measure that would safeguard taxpayer dollars and return some of the $3 billion budget surplus to hard-working Kansans. If Governor Kelly signs this bill, Kansas will be more competitive and can leave behind its reputation as one of the ten highest-taxed states in the country.”
