AFP-KS Awaits $3.5 Billion Budget Surplus to be Returned to Kansans, Urges Governor to Sign Tax Compromise Bill

Apr 22, 2024 by AFP

TOPEKA, KS—Following the latest Consensus Revenue Estimates outperforming expectations, Americans for Prosperity-Kansas (AFP-KS) says Governor Laura Kelly has even more reason to sign the latest tax compromise bill on her desk, HB 2036, and return the state’s budget surplus to hardworking families.

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

“Under Bidenomics, it’s not often that we can say our economic future looks bright, but thankfully Kansas’ recent Consensus Revenue Estimates show us just that. Hardworking families across our state still need relief to catch up from soaring inflation and our lawmakers have delivered the Governor a bipartisan bill to sustainably cut property, income, and food sale taxes.

“While our state economy is stable and $1.6 billion is in our rainy-day fund, inflation still outweighs Kansas wages. The tax compromise bill awaiting the Governor’s signature is affordable and necessary. This money belongs to the people and Governor Kelly should take urgent action.”
