A 2020 Vision for Iowa

ITR Legislative Issue Guide

Having 20/20 vision indicates a person’s vision is clear and sharp.

 

Governments rarely operate with this type of clarity. That is why we are working on a prescription to help the state government’s vision. In other words, Iowans deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money and have the freedom to make decisions without unnecessary barriers.

 

Heading into the 2020 legislative session, policymakers have the opportunity to speed up scheduled tax cuts, make it easier to enter new careers, guarantee support is given to those who are genuinely in need, and increase the fiscal accountability of local governments.

 

Iowans deserve every opportunity to grow and prosper. When citizens make their voices heard it’s harder for bureaucrats to get away with increasing spending and creating economic burdens.

 

As new issues come to light in the 2020 legislative session, ITR will weigh in when appropriate as we remain the voice of the taxpayer.
