TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Senate leaders have postponed a debate on a bill correcting flaws in last year's state law cutting income taxes because Republicans anticipated a broader discussion of tax policy.
Majority Leader Terry Bruce of Hutchinson said fellow Republicans thought bringing the bill up Wednesday as planned would lead to a debate on Gov. Sam Brownback's latest tax proposals.
Bruce said Brownback's fellow Republicans want to wait until next week to debate his proposals in the Senate.
This year's plan from Brownback follows up on last year's massive income tax cuts.
The governor wants to phase in a second round of cuts in individual income tax rates but eliminate two popular deductions for homeowners.
The bill correcting flaws in last year's law won House approval earlier this week.
