Last week, a majority of Republicans in the Kansas Senate ignored the will of their constituents by giving $190 million in tax relief for wealthy individuals and multinational corporations.

The tax break comes from Republicans’ decision not to tax the income earned on a portion of an individual’s or corporation’s investments held abroad through a new provision of the 2017 federal tax code.

If legislators do nothing, the tax, for which Gov. Laura Kelly has argued, would automatically be levied against these multinational corporations.
