CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Group Renews Call for Sales Tax toward Natural Resources Trust Fund
DES MOINES, Iowa (WHO-TV) – The 2017 Legislative session in Iowa is just weeks away, and lobbying is underway.
The Iowa Water and Land Legacy held a news conference to announce more support for a 3/8 cent sales tax to fund the dormant Natural Resources, and Outdoor Trust Fund.
Voters gave approval in 2010 to establishing the fund, but it is up to the legislature to vote for the added sales tax.
“As a physician in the community I’m also concerned about the health of the community,” said Dr. Richard Demming of Above + Beyond Cancer. “I’m concerned about the health of Iowa and the environment and I am a strong supporter of the trust fund.”
