A group representing chambers of commerce and economic development organizations in Iowa’s 16 largest cities issued its annual “wish list” for the upcoming session of the Iowa Legislature.
Chris McGowan, with the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, says one priority of the Iowa Chamber Alliance is a “statewide-only” minimum wage.
McGowan is vice-chair of the ICA.
John Stineman, executive director of the I-C-A, says the group is calling on the legislature to halt the patchwork of local rates that are higher than the current state standard of $7.25 an hour.

Jason Hutcheson, chairman of the Iowa Chamber Alliance, says one of his group’s top priorities is tax reform.
The 2017 Legislative Session begins on January 9. Republicans will hold a majority in both the Iowa House and Senate over the next two years.
