The following statement is attributed to Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley:
“This estimate adjustment doesn’t change anything. We still have a self-inflicted budget crisis, inherently unfair tax policies, and underfunded schools. The Legislature has a monumental task ahead of us when we return on May 1 because Sam Brownback refuses to take any responsibility.
“Instead, he continues to falsely claim his tax plan and $360 million in one-time money is somehow going to reduce a $900 million budget shortfall over the next two years. All of this makes it more imperative to override Brownback’s veto on a revenue plan.”
