TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The chairman of a Kansas House committee has drafted an alternative to Gov. Sam Brownback's plan for more cuts in personal income taxes.

Taxation Committee Chairman Richard Carlson said Monday his proposal wouldn't rely on additional sales tax revenues to stabilize the budget while the state reduces income tax rates further. It would cut income tax rates automatically if state revenues increase.

The St. Marys Republican said he will outline his plan during a Tuesday afternoon committee meeting but shared details with The Associated Press.

Both the Carlson and Brownback plans would follow up on massive income tax cuts enacted last year. But the Republican governor also wants to bolster the budget by cancelling a drop in the sales tax scheduled for July.
