A Kansas Senate committee is planning two days of hearings this week on Gov. Sam Brownback's tax proposals.

The Assessment and Taxation Committee is scheduled to begin its examination of the governor's proposals Tuesday. Brownback's fellow conservative Republicans dominate the Senate, but many members have misgivings about the measures he's outlined.

Brownback's goal is to stabilize the state budget while allowing room for additional cuts in individual income taxes after aggressive income tax cuts last year.

He's proposing to phase in a fresh round of individual income tax rates over three years. But he's also seeking to eliminate two popular income tax deductions for homeowners.

The governor also wants to keep the state sales tax at its current rate rather than having it drop in July as previously planned.
