Branstad makes a push for tax cuts


Governor Terry Branstad made another push to cut taxes for families and businesses in Iowa.

At a press conference on Monday, Branstad said lawmakers have the opportunity to reduce income and property tax thanks to better than expected state revenues.

"I'm committed to ensuring that taxpayers have a seat at the table and that the decisions that are made about what to do with our surplus ensures that those who pay the bill also reap the benefits," Branstad said.

The governor said he can't release details of his tax cutting ideas until the state's Revenue Estimating Conference (REC) makes its December forecast of revenues for the year ahead.
