I I I Capitol Comments B V Kansas State Senator Janis Lee The regular legislative session ended a week ago. It is all over now except the shouting, or, in this case, weeping, gnashing of teeth and peti- tion drives: I am referring, of course, to the state budget problems and the deci- sions legislators made to deal with them. I expect citizens to react, both to the tax increases and the spending cuts. Knowing full well none of us gets away unscathed by either cuts or taxes, all that can be done at this point in time is explain, I believe everyone deserves an accurate accounting and I am con- cerned with all the misleading reports around. Although "tax increase" is the war cry of a vocal minority who want to undo the delicate budget balance, the temporary increase in sales, income, and cigarette taxes is far from the whole budget picture. The Legislature actu- ally cut more than $2 for every $1 in the tax package. Beginning in the November special session, and through last week, the tally for balancing the budget involved $295 million in spend- mg cuts and transfers from cash re- serve funds and $117 million in taxes. Even so, many of the same critics wanted more cuts yet, ignoring the certain increase in local property taxes that would result. It needs to be said that tax increases were reluctantly supported, only in the face of worse consequences from fur- ther cuts. There were few options apparent, other than taxation, when considering additionalcuts to k- 12 edu- cation or health care for the disabled. I don't believe arty citizens would be more pleased to pay from their "prop- erty tax pocket" rather than the "sales, income, cigarette pocket." All in the Legislatdre realize the possibility of a negative public reac- tion to our decisions. It comes along with the job. Voter satisfaction must drive the democratic system. But when all available choices lead to some dis- satisfaction, we must trust both in our own judgment and the collective judg- ment of informed citizens, and act. Otherwise, government is a mere opin- ion poll, powerless to carry out its duty. Some say an anti-tax petition is coming. All who consider it should think as well on where they prefer to make further cuts, and the result, for every cut creates a conseqhence." The biggest targets, k-12 education and Medicaid, represent the bulk of state tax money and are fixed costs and long term commitments. Cut these and the burden simply shifts to the counties, increasing property taxes. Not much of a choice, but which pocket do you choose? k ; Levi Gunn, a member of the Supe- rior High School band, received an =Outstanding Bandsman" award at the Maestro Please Music Festival in Colorado Springs.
