Cattle Producers To Hold Annual Meeting
KSCB News - November 30, 2011 8:16 am
Hundreds of Kansas cattle producers will
converge in Wichita this week as the Kansas Livestock Association
examines options for revamping the state’s tax structure.
The annual meeting runs Thursday and Friday. It comes as the
association’s members consider whether to throw their political
muscle behind a push to repeal state income taxes.
KLA has a longstanding policy supporting less reliance on
property taxes and favoring sales and income taxes.
A panel is expected to discuss the options Gov. Sam Brownback’s
administration is considering for his tax plan.
The panel includes the governor’s policy director, Landon
Fulmer, state Rep. Don Hineman of Dighton and Finney County
Commissioner Larry Jones of Holcomb.
A session on the cattle market outlook is also on the agenda.
