TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas House members expect a debate on taxes to focus on proposals to lower the sales tax and divert highway funds to other parts of the budget.

A bill on Wednesday's agenda would follow up on income tax cuts enacted last year by promising future reductions in income tax rates each year if overall state revenues grow more than 2 percent.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback proposed more aggressive income tax cuts this year.

Brownback wants to cancel a decrease in the sales tax scheduled by law for July. The House bill would reduce the tax as planned.

The governor wants to keep the sales tax at its current rate to stabilize the budget. The House plan does it by diverting $382 million highway funds to other uses.
