Governor Signs Kansas Jobless Tax Bill



TOPEKA, Kan.  -  Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a bill that he says will save Kansas employers about $42 million by adjusting their payments to the fund that pays benefits to unemployed workers.
 
Brownback had a signing ceremony Tuesday at Cerner Corp. in Kansas City, Kan. Executives from the electronic health records company attended, along with state Labor Secretary Lana Gordon and officials of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce.
 
Brownback's office says the bill will lower payments for about 44,000 businesses. Employers who've paid more into the fund than their workers have received in benefits will see a 15% cut in rates.
 
The measure also provides a discounted rate to non-construction employers who open businesses in Kansas.
