The Kansas House has begun debate on a Republican plan to cut income taxes.
The bill includes amendments that would restore several refundable tax credits and raise the spending cap to 3 percent.
Supporters say the measure will improve the Kansas business climate.
As written by a GOP-dominated committee, the bill promises future cuts to individual income taxes as revenues grow and would force the state to check the annual growth in its spending at 2 percent. The state would phase out taxes on the earnings of thousands of partnerships, sole proprietorships and other small businesses.
The sales tax rate would drop to 5.7 percent from 6.3 percent in July 2013.
