The Kansas Chamber of Commerce vowed to target lawmakers who voted for a tax increase. According to state Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, that includes all but two state senators. Francisco contends that 23 senators voted for the 1 percent sales-tax rate increase, while an additional 15 senators voted earlier for an amendment to increase the sales-tax rate by 0.9 percent and also levy sales taxes on abortions, the Lawrence Journal-World reported. Conservative Republicans in the House also supported a budget that could have caused local school districts to raise property taxes. A large majority of House members also backed the new transportation plan, which is paid for with a sales-tax increase.
