Glowing words about the Kansas economy gushed regularly from Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration following deep income tax cuts enacted during the last two years. But a new report out last week shows Kansas is losing revenue even as tax collections grew in most other states. Kansas stood among 10 states with revenue declines for the first half of fiscal year 2014. Of those states, Kansas saw the second-biggest decline. The drop-off followed income tax cuts that began in January 2013.
