When Gov. Sam Brownback signed his massive income tax reduction bill last week, a handout was distributed predicting that the tax cut would produce 23,000 new jobs in the state by 2020, over and above normal growth, and that 35,000 people will have moved into the state. This would be, he said, like a “shot of adrenaline into the heart of the economy.”

Once again the Kansas Economic Progress Council took a careful look at the governor’s numbers and discovered Kansas would outpace the governor’s predictions for job and population grown under normal circumstances.
