Kansas can’t afford to be generous, yet



May 6, 2018 - 11:00 PM

Just hours before members of the Kansas House took a vote Friday night on whether to cut taxes — yes, again — a financial rating agency bumped the state’s rating from “negative” to “stable.”

The state’s tax collections are working, experts with Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings said. That improved status means investors will view Kansas as a good place to do business.

So you wonder why the vote was 59-59, four votes shy of the necessary majority, to take Kansas back on a path of financial irresponsibility.
