TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas House and Senate negotiators are
working out a final version of legislation cutting sales and income
taxes.

Three senators and three House members met for about an hour
Tuesday to review the two chambers' differences on tax-cutting
measures. They're expected to meet again Wednesday.

The House and Senate have both passed bills cutting the state's
top individual income tax rates and eliminating income taxes for
191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses.

Both also have passed proposals to reduce sales taxes, as well as
measures aimed at holding down local property taxes.

But the two chambers differ widely on parts of their proposals.

Gov. Sam Brownback is pushing for an overhaul of the state
income tax code.
