Topeka – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today issued the following statement regarding flat tax legislation:

“My goal has always been to make Kansas the best state in America to raise a family and grow a business. A flat tax accomplishes this goal by making taxes fair for everyone and encouraging economic growth.

“The Senate’s flat tax legislation creates a single low tax rate for Kansans, solving today’s budget challenges without unnecessarily harming economic growth in Kansas. If the legislature sends a bill to my desk similar in nature to SB 214, I will sign it.”
