TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas House members are questioning why Republican Gov. Sam Brownback's tax plan doesn't provide relief for corporations and oil producers.

The issues arose Wednesday as Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan testified before the House Taxation Committee.

Brownback wants to reduce individual income tax rates again after aggressive cuts last year.

But Overland Park Republican Marvin Kleeb (klehb) asked Jordan why the governor isn't proposing to reduce corporate income tax rates.

Jordan says many businesses don't pay any taxes because of credits and incentives.

Dighton Republican Don Hineman said he's concerned about last year's repeal of a severance tax exemption for some new oil production. Jordan said most industry officials didn't have a problem with the change. He also said it took advantage of a boom in production.
