The Iowa Public Radio released a segment yesterday about an upcoming bill that’s “a dream come true” for environmentalists and natural resource advocates.
The bill raises the state sales tax for a natural resource trust fund that was approved two years ago.
The amendment says that any time Iowa raises its sales tax, a portion of the penny of it should go toward natural resources.
If it passes, the sales taxes devoted to the trust fund would be raised to over a third of a cent over the next three years, and will be utilized for conservation, recreation, and water quality in the state.
