TOPEKA, Kan. -- A trip to the grocery store in Kansas could get a cheaper, under a plan proposed by Kansas lawmakers.

Under the plan introduced by Rep. Jana Goodman, R-Leavenworth, nearly every item sold in grocery stores would be sold tax-free. Candy, tobacco, alcohol and prepared meals would still be subject to sales taxes.

The plan could cost the state over $375 million in tax revenue.

The Kansas Senate still has to approve the legislation, which is included in an overall tax bill that would reduce the state's sales tax rate to 5.7 percent next year.
