Republican lawmakers say reducing taxes is a priority, but they’re not ready to endorse the tax plan Governor Kim Reynolds unveiled in her “Condition of the State” message.

Reynolds proposed a one percent hike in the state sales tax, along with a reduction in state income taxes, as well as a move to try to reduce county property taxes.

House Speaker Pat Grassley says he doesn’t yet know if there’s a will among his G-O-P colleagues to embrace all of the concepts Reynolds outlined.

OC……….work through ’em.” :10

Senate President Charles Schneider of West Des Moines, says the specifics are important.

OC…….more competitive.” :10

Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Janet Petersen of Des Moines are wary of the governor’s call to shift how state funding for water quality projects is allocated.

OC…………..lift up polluters.” ;13

Petersen says there’s also no permanent funding source in the governor’s plan to ensure the state pays a greater share for mental health services, as future lawmakers could change the formula Reynolds proposed.
