In a poll, only one-third of Wichita voters support local governments using taxpayer money to provide subsidies to certain businesses for economic development.
In April, the Kansas Policy Institute commissioned SurveyUSA to conduct a scientific poll concerning current topics in Wichita. The press release from KPI, along with a link to the complete survey results, is available at Poll: Wichitans don’t want sales tax increase.
The second question the survey asked was “In general, do you agree? Or disagree? With the idea of local governments using taxpayer money to provide subsidies to certain businesses for economic development?” The first graph covers all respondents, the second graph divides the surveyed by political affiliation, and the third divides them by political ideology.
Overall, 55 percent disagreed with using taxpayer money to provide subsidies to certain businesses for economic development, while only 34 percent agreed.
