TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas Legislature's top GOP leaders are negotiating over additional cuts in income taxes and changes in the state's sales tax.

Brownback confirmed Wednesday that he's been talking directly to Senate President Susan Wagle of Wichita and House Speaker Ray Merrick of Stilwell about taxes.

The Legislature reconvened Wednesday after a monthlong spring break to wrap up its business for the year. Brownback and GOP leaders hope to follow up on income tax cuts enacted last year while also stabilizing the budget.

The Senate endorsed Brownback's plan for more income tax cuts and his proposal to cancel a decrease in the sales tax scheduled by law for July.

The House wants to allow the sales tax to drop and less aggressive income tax cuts.
