Secret to Pro-Growth Tax Policy... Low Spending
Posted by Todd Davidson on Thursday, October 11, 2012

New analysis from Kansas Policy Institute puts Kansas’ general fund spending in perspective. Using data from the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO) and the Census Bureau, KPI has calculated general fund spending per-resident for all 50 states.

The spending data demonstrates the key to a pro-growth tax policy is low spending.
  • Kansas would have spent $1.2 billion less if spending were at the same level as the average state without an income tax.
  • Kansas spent a quarter more than the top ten states in the Tax Foundation's State Business Tax Climate Index.
  • Kansas spent 24% more than the ten highest ranked states in ALEC's Rich State Poor States.
