David Klepper, McClatchy: Johnson County school bill shot down in Kansas House

TOPEKA | A bill authorizing Johnson County schools to raise more local property tax revenue – critical to holding together the coalition in favor of the sales tax hike – went down hard Monday in the Kansas House, 41-76.

The bill’s passage was key to Johnson County moderate’s support for a 1-cent sales tax hike, which itself is critical to a budget proposal that avoids new deep cuts to state services and education.
