Iowa House speaker: No gas tax this year

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

There won't be a gas tax this year -- that's according to Iowa House speaker Kraig Paulsen.

He says its clear voters don't want one.

The tax would help pay for bridge and road repairs -- but you can blame the already-high gas prices -- and Paulsen says many voters are skeptical the extra money would actually go to improve Iowa's roads.

The last time Iowa raised its gas tax was 1989.
