State Jobless Rate Down From 1 Year Ago

KSCB News - May 15, 2012 8:03 am

State officials will get the latest report

on the Kansas economy on Friday with the release of April

unemployment figures.

The state’s jobless rate stood at 6.2 percent in March, down

from 6.8 percent in March 2011.

Gov. Sam Brownback and the Republican-controlled Legislature

have been working all session on tax cuts they hope will stimulate

growth and promote job creation.

Legislators have sent Brownback one version of the tax plan, but

he has encouraged them to work on a compromise that will phase in

the cuts and have a smaller effect on state revenue.

Part of the package already approved would eliminate taxes for

191,000 businesses.
