Out-of-Control Local Government Spending

posted on January 18, 2019


ITR President Chris Ingstad was interviewed on multiple radio stations this week, 99.3 FM The Truth in Des Moines and KLMJ/KQCR in Hampton.

When asked about property taxes, Ingstad said, “Since 2000, local government spending is up over 100 percent. GDP in Iowa over that same time is up about 40 percent; inflation is about 50 percent. If you measure what the state itself spends, it is about 60 percent. Local government is outpacing it all.”

Well said! A video of the entire interview on The Truth has been posted on theĀ ITR Facebook page.
