According to a legislator from Western Iowa, “We tax too much, we spend too much, and we regulate too much.” ITR agrees with Rep. Jon Jacobsen and appreciates the time he and three of his fellow legislators spent with ITR and NFIB members in Council Bluffs.
Some other noteworthy quotes were:
"In 2023 we will have a top income tax rate of 6.5%. For the first time in four decades Western Iowa will have a rate lower than Nebraska. I would like to fast-forward rate reduction."
- Senator Dan Dawson
"The tax changes will make a big difference. We need to continue on that work."
- Senator Tom Shipley
"We changed the culture at the Capitol. They know we won’t spend more than we take in."
- Rep. Mary Ann Hanusa
ITR thanks these legislators and all the members who joined us at Caddy's Kitchen and Cocktails in Council Bluffs.
