UPDATE: Monday, March 12, 2012

The Kansas House has delayed debate on a bill that would cut the state's sales and income taxes in what supporters see as a push for economic growth.

The debate was postponed until Tuesday because of scheduling issues Monday with other committees and other logistics.

The measure would promise future cuts to individual income taxes as revenues grow, forcing the state to stop 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 also would drop to 5.7 percent from 6.3 percent in July 2013, as previously scheduled.

The plan is a modified version of one presented earlier this
year by leaders of the House's Republican majority.
