Kansas state Sen. Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, said she will recommend an early end to most of a 1% hike in the sales tax approved in 2010.

The Legislature raised the tax to 6.3% from 5.3% due to a decline in state revenues during the recession. The tax was set to roll back to 5.7% on July 1, 2013, but McGinn will propose a reduction to 5.7% on Jan. 1, 2013.
