A special tax policy panel at the Kansas Livestock Association Convention, which will be held Dec. 1 and 2 in Wichita, will shed light on a widely anticipated proposal by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback to change the state's tax structure, as well as devising a new plan to fund schools. The discussion will be part of the Dec. 1 Beef Industry University, sponsored by the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.
The panel will analyze the governor's plan and help KLA members better understand how it would work. KLA Tax Committee Chairman Ron Shortridge of Satanta will moderate the panel, which will include: Landon Fulmer, policy director for Brownback; Rep. Don Hineman of Dighton; and Finney County Commissioner Larry Jones of Holcomb. Both Hineman and Jones are past KLA presidents. Jones currently serves on Brownback's council of economic advisors.
