Kansas cattle producers focus on market, tax policy at forum in Wichita

November 29, 2011


— Hundreds of Kansas cattle producers will converge in Wichita this week as the Kansas Livestock Association examines options for revamping the state's tax structure.

The annual meeting runs Thursday and Friday. It comes as the association's members consider whether to throw their political muscle behind a push to repeal state income taxes.

KLA has a longstanding policy supporting less reliance on property taxes and favoring sales and income taxes.

A panel is expected to discuss the options Gov. Sam Brownback's administration is considering for his tax plan.

The panel includes the governor's policy director, Landon Fulmer, state Rep. Don Hineman of Dighton and Finney County Commissioner Larry Jones of Holcomb.

A session on the cattle market outlook is also on the agenda.
