The Wall Street Journal: Kansas legislators overwhelmingly reject Brownback’s tax-cut model

State legislators in Kansas have finally called a halt to Gov. Sam Brownback’s experiment to create a red-state model of tax cuts to spur economic growth.

In a vote Tuesday night, legislators overrode his veto of a bill to raise taxes and close a nearly $900 million budget gap over the next two years. Though both chambers are controlled by Republicans, the House voted 88 to 31 and the state Senate voted 27 to 13 in a harsh rebuke for the governor.

The bill is expected to raise $1.2 billion over two years and close a projected shortfall of $889 million over the same period.
