Topeka An anti-tax group is now using e-mails to alert Kansans quickly about legislative proposals to raise taxes.
Americans for Prosperity has set up a Web site, Kansas Tax Alert, where people can sign up for e-mails.
State Director Derrick Sontag says the group will send out an alert whenever a bill raising taxes is introduced in the House or Senate. Clicking on the alert will then allow recipients to send e-mails to legislators.
Sontag says the goal is to allow Kansans to contact their legislators quickly.
And taxes are on legislators' agenda this year. Gov. Mark Parkinson has proposed increasing sales and tobacco taxes to close a budget shortfall.
