The National Federation of Independent Business in Kansas member survey released Monday showed that 95 percent of members rejected the idea of increase of raising the state income tax.
About three-fourths of those responding said they opposed the idea of increasing the state sales tax and upping the motor fuel tax.
On a separate issue, 82 percent said state government should be required to use only existing criteria in deciding whether to approve a business-related permit. The question stems from a 2007 decision by the state secretary of health and environment to deny a permit for two coal-fired energy plants in western Kansas.
