House Tax Committee Hearing on HB 2306

Chairman Marvin Kleeb

3:30 p.m.  Room 582-N

Wednesday, February 18 - Liquor Enforcement Tax Hearing

Thursday, February 19 - Tobacco Tax Hearing

Bill increases liquor enforcement tax from 8% to 12% and adds $1.50 to the cigarette tax per pack.

We know from experience that one-on-one conversations of liquor store owners and their legislators are the most effective way to continue to defeat these bad bills. Call the Hotline 1-866-519-2200.

PUBLIC HEARING ON HB 2200 – House Commerce Committee

KABR is working with our partners, including Keep Kansans in Business, the Kansas Wine and Spirits Wholesalers Association and the Kansas Association for Responsible Liquor Laws to effectively present our case within the time limitations.  To submit written testimony – email it to KABR at by Sunday, February 8.  Your written statement should include your name, store or business name, address and phone/email contact information.  Round up your small business partners – banker, insurance rep, attorney, accountant, etc., to submit written testimony as well.  We will make sure that the copies are made and delivered to the committee secretary 24 hours in advance of the hearing.
