TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Speaker Ray Merrick expects the Kansas House to approve a bill cutting sales and income taxes that's an alternative to a tax plan from Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.

The House was scheduled to take final action Thursday on its measure. House members gave it first-round approval Wednesday on an 82-37 vote.

Brownback and most GOP legislators want to follow up on massive personal income tax cuts enacted last year with additional reductions in income tax rates.

The House plan promises rate reductions in years in which state revenues grow more than 2 percent. Brownback wants guaranteed rate cuts.

Brownback would cancel a sales tax decrease scheduled by law for July, and the House wouldn't.

The Senate passed a tax bill in line with Brownback on those two points.
