TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A key Senate leader says debate on a bill that would implement Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback's income tax cuts will be delayed for a few weeks as winter weather bottles up a crowded legislative schedule.

Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce said Tuesday that the bill would probably be debated during the week of March 11 because of a backlog of other issues that must be cleared so legislators can meet a key deadline in the 2013 session. Two snowstorms have caused legislators to adjust schedules and postpone debates.

Brownback seeks to follow up on massive income tax cuts enacted last year by phasing in a second round of reductions in individual income tax rates over the next four years, then position the state to gradually eliminate personal income taxes.
