A New Twist on a Last Period Problem

Kansas legislators wonder if they cut a little too deep. Actually, only the state senators feel that way about the tax cuts the legislature passed just before spring break. The House wanted even more
In the end, the cuts that were made left Senate President Steve Morris "a little uncomfortable" about where today's tax reductions will leave tomorrow's budgets. But this isn't a partisan squabble; both chambers are strongly Republican.
It may be worth noting that Morris, like all Kansas state senators, will have to pay more pipers during his four-year term than the two-year representatives. Because the tax breaks are backloaded, representatives can crow to constituents about the cuts, whereas senators will face a walloping fiscal imbalance when the cuts come home to roost.
