TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers are hoping to resume negotiations over proposals for additional cuts in individual income taxes.

Legislators were reconvening Wednesday at the Statehouse after a monthlong spring break to wrap up its business for the year. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback wants the GOP-dominated Legislature to follow up on massive personal income tax cuts enacted last year.

But three senators and three House members must resolve differences between the two chambers for a bill to pass.

The Senate passed a bill containing Brownback’s plan for more income tax cuts over the next four years and his proposal to cancel a decrease in the sales tax scheduled by law for July.

The GOP-controlled House approved a measure to allow the sales tax to drop, with less aggressive income tax cuts.
