Northeast Johnson County morning roundup


House vote Thursday sends tax reform package to Senate this morning. With a 76-43 vote — narrower than the 83-39 vote giving the bill initial approval Wednesday — the Kansas House of Representatives on Thursday voted to send a bill largely undoing the 2012 tax cuts to the Senate for consideration. All of northeast Johnson County’s representatives voted in favor of the bill, HB 2178. The Senate is expected to take it up this morning after caucus meetings.
