TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A top aide to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he's talked with Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon about the use of incentives to lure businesses across the border between the two states in the Kansas City area.

Nixon called Tuesday for an end to using such incentives if companies simply move from one of the states to the other.

Brownback's office is preparing a formal response to Nixon's remarks. But Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley said the two governors and the states' commerce departments have been discussing the issue for more than a year.

A moratorium may be a hard sell to some Kansas lawmakers.

Kansas House Republican J.R. Claeys of Salina tweeted after Nixon's remarks that Missouri appears to be surrendering in the so-called border war.
