TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas voters aren't likely to have much definitive data ahead of next year's elections on how well massive income tax cuts championed by Gov. Sam Brownback are stimulating the state's economy.

Instead, they'll be forced to sort through competing claims from the Republican governor's administration and its Democratic critics. Those claims will be gleaned from fiscal forecasts and monthly employment reports.

The picture of Brownback's signature policy probably will remain fragmented.

Democrats contend a new fiscal forecast released last week shows that the tax cuts will starve schools and government programs.

Supporters argue that the cuts already are fostering business investment. But they also acknowledge that it will take well past November 2014 for the results to be obvious.
