Letters to the editor on sales tax, drug-testing Medicaid, right and wrong, gun control, armed guards

Our state government is threatening our local development initiatives and damaging the integrity of the governor and the Legislature. A 0.6 percent sales tax is scheduled to end in July. Wichita Transit plans include the possibility of a city sales tax to improve routes and eliminate operating shortfalls of $500,000 per year that caused the city to dip into reserves to cover it this year. Now Gov. Sam Brownback is considering extending the statewide sales tax.
