TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Republican leaders in the Kansas Senate are signaling nervousness over the fate of legislation to further overhaul the state's tax system after massive income tax cuts last year.
The tipoff was a change in the Senate's handling of a technical bill correcting flaws in last year's tax-cutting law after the House passed it early last week.
GOP leaders initially planned to have the full Senate debate the measure within days. They anticipated it would pass unchanged and go to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.
But top senators postponed the debate until at least this week.
Brownback wants to enact a second round of cuts in individual income tax rates over the next four years. His plan also promises further reductions in future years if the state's economy is robust enough.
