On Tuesday, Kansas legislators voted to override Gov. Sam Brownback’s veto of a bill that would raise state income taxes, effectively ending the governor’s plan to reduce the budget gap by securitizing tobacco settlement payments.

The bill, which passed with a vote of 88 to 31 in the House and 27 to 13 in the Kansas Senate, would reverse tax cuts pushed by Brownback in an attempt to stimulate economic growth. It would create of a third income tax bracket for individuals making more than $30,000 annually and couples making over $60,000, but raise taxes for all income levels.
