The Iowa Senate tax writing committee has a new leader. Senator Jake Chapman was named the new committee chair after Senator Randy Feenstra stepped down to devote more time for his congressional primary campaign in Iowa's 4th District.
Chapman was elected to the Iowa Senate in 2012 and said he looks forward to working with Senator Feenstra "as we continue to reform income taxes and reduce some of the highest tax rates in the country.”
ITR President Chris Ingstad said, "The Iowa Legislature passed pro-taxpayer legislation two years in a row. Senators Feenstra and Chapman were leaders in this achievement, and we are confident they will both continue to be strong voices promoting better tax policy for all Iowans."
