Americans For Prosperity — Kansas reported last month on Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius regarding taxation and spending in Kansas. As reported in Low marks for Gov. Sebelius on Cato Institute grade card, she doesn’t fare well. While supporting some business tax cuts, spending in Kansas has been out of control for some years. This rapid growth in spending and the constituencies that have become accustomed to it is what makes me believe that spending cuts will be difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish in the upcoming legislative session.
The entire Cato Institute report is available here: Fiscal Policy Report Card on America’s Governors: 2008. It’s worth reading.
