(CNN) — Kansas has suspended income tax refunds and may not be able to pay state employees, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius announced as she and Republican legislative leaders remained in a standoff over the state’s financial problems.

The state doesn’t have adequate money in its main account to pay its bills, so on Monday Sebelius requested approval from the state’s GOP leadership to move $225 million from other state accounts to cover the shortages.

The Republicans denied her request, saying they could not approve the certificate of indebtedness — a.k.a. internal borrowing — until they know the state can repay the money by June 30, the end of the fiscal year, said Senate Majority Leader Derek Schmidt. By law, he said Tuesday, the state cannot borrow from next year’s budget to pay for this year’s bills.

Can you imagine the change in withholding by every friggin' American for 2009? Why get over withheld on your W-2 when the state or feds will "need" to steal that money from working folks? Refund? Forget it.

I agree. Folks will tinker with the withholding or estimated so there is much closer to a $0.00 at the end.

I wonder what the good folks at the Kansas statehouse will do if people who OWE taxes simply say "we just don't have it, sorry", using the exact wording as the state. I sense awkwardness.

No worry. States can't afford to jail people soon. This is great time to commit crime.

No tourists lately either. Or real estate tax on all those unsold condos.

I would imagine dark clouds on your horizon.

Kansas suspends tax refunds; may not make payroll

KWCH - Kansas News and Weather - Governor Signs Budget Bill

What's all the Hubbub? Only like 11 people live in Kansas, who gives a f***. The only thing in the whole state is a few farms and a bunch of signs that say "Next Gas 200 Miles". I suppose we can't let that state fail since that's where superman was born. Where in Kansas is Krypton exactly? Thats where he landed cause Jurell knew the spaceship couldn't possibly hit anything of value if it crashed there.
