In the end, it wasn’t even close.

Despite the lead-up rhetoric, Republican legislators overwhelmingly gave in to Gov. Sam Brownback Friday night and refused to repeal the income tax break that gives 330,000 business owners and farmers a free ride.

Rep. Kent Thompson, R-LaHarpe, was in that 74-45 majority. Rep. Adam Lusker, D-Frontenac, aligned with the minority.
