TOPEKA — A proposal to raise sales taxes by $271 million will head to the floor of the Kansas House after being advanced by a House panel Wednesday morning. The plan, which was crafted by two south-central Kansas lawmakers, will leave an income tax exemption for business owners intact. The proposal raises the state’s sales tax rate to 6.85 percent up from 6.15 percent, but drops the rate on food purchases to 5.9 percent. (Wichita Eagle)
