TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Tax policy and school funding questions come head to head when lawmakers return to work Wednesday.
Democratic leaders Sen. Anthony Hensley and Rep. Paul Davis met with reporters Tuesday to talk about it. They question Gov. Sam Brownback's approach of moving to eliminate income tax, while keeping sales tax higher.
Republican supporters say it would spur economic development, but Democrats say it shifts the burden of funding state services to people who are poor.
Lawmakers return to work Wednesday facing disagreement over cuts to higher education funding. They're also under a court order to increase funding for K-thru-12 public schools.
