Sky won’t fall due to tax cut

The claim by Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, that Kansas’ tax reform will create a $2.7 billion deficit is based on a hypothetical scenario that every legislator understands cannot occur, as a balanced budget is required by state law every year (July 19 Opinion). The deficit prediction comes from a standard static analysis that government uses and that by design ignores the realities of balanced-budget requirements and the additional state and local tax revenue that will be generated from increased economic activity.
