TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Gov. Sam Brownback believes Kansas lawmakers are making progress in resolving tax issues even though the House and Senate have suspended negotiations for now.
Brownback told reporters Wednesday that legislators are starting to work through their differences.
He said, ``It's going to happen.''
The biggest disagreement among Brownback's fellow Republicans is over the 6.3 percent state sales tax, which is scheduled by law to fall to 5.7 percent.
Brownback has proposed keeping the sales tax at its current rate to raise new revenues and prevent budget shortfalls while Kansas cuts income taxes further.
He and GOP leaders want to follow up on income tax cuts approved last year, but some House members have balked at canceling the sales tax decrease.
