Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is preparing for the first legislative session since winning reelection this fall.

His first term in office included sweeping changes to the state's tax policy and programs like Medicaid. Brownback also recently announced a series of budget cuts needed to eliminate a deficit in the current fiscal year. The state is facing another deficit in the coming year. 

Stephen Koranda recently sat down with Brownback to talk about the budget and the upcoming session. He began by asking the governor about the state's tax policy.

Brownback will outline the details of his legislative agenda during the State of the State Address on January 15th.
