Take the House GOP tax preference survey

Kansas House Republicans' survey on tax policy preferences.

Struggling to find consensus within their own ranks about which taxes they’re willing to raise to close the state’s $400 million budget gap, Republican leaders in the Kansas House on Sunday resorted to a simple survey.

The survey, which is available below, lists a number of options that have been floated around so far this year, and it asks members to check which ones they could vote for.

Within minutes of handing it out during a caucus meeting, people following the Legislature on social media got the idea that maybe the public should be allowed to weigh in on it too. So, in the interest of full and open debate, we’re posting the survey form on this page. You can also download a pdf version of it here, fill it out and send it to your legislator.

And while it may have been unintentional, the form also leaves plenty of room to write in your own suggestions.
