TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback says Kansas residents want their legislators to get tax policy right and are willing to accept the annual session going longer than anticipated.

The Republican governor said in a statement Friday that it's challenging for lawmakers to enact policies for improving the economy while balancing the state budget.

Republicans in the GOP-controlled Legislature are deadlocked on proposals to cut personal income taxes while raising new sales tax revenues to keep the budget in balance.

Both chambers have adjourned until Tuesday, guaranteeing that the legislative session will go into its 95th day.

Brownback said of Kansans, "They're interested in solutions, even if it takes some overtime."

His statement came two days after he admonished lawmakers that it was time for them to wrap up their session.
