Kansas nonprofit groups are telling legislators that the services they provide will be curtailed if they're forced to pay the state's sales tax.

The House Taxation Committee continued hearings Monday on proposals for raising revenue to help close a projected $416 million budget shortfall for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

The committee already has heard from educators and advocates for the needy, who've said raising taxes is necessary to protect vital services from cuts.

But Stephanie Weiter (WHY'-tur), an American Cancer Society regional vice president, says eliminating a sales tax exemption for her nonprofit group would force it cut back on education and services for cancer patients.
