ITR recently co-hosted a roundtable luncheon in Muscatine with the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Members from both organizations heard area legislators discuss income taxes, property taxes, government spending, and Iowa's workforce.
An ITR member summed up these challenging issues by saying, "I do not understand how simple things should be and how complicated they get."
Thank you, Senator Mark Lofgren, Representative Gary Carlson, and Representative Dave Kerr for meeting with area taxpayers and talking about efforts to simplify state government.
ITR is planning to host more legislative roundtable discussions this year. Keep an eye out for when we are in your part of the state!
