Iowa Soybean Association backs gas tax hike

Posted:

The Iowa Soybean Association is asking lawmakers to raise the state's fuel tax to fund what it says are critical improvements to rural roads.

Iowa hasn't raised its fuel tax since 1989, and the money to maintain the rural roads and bridges continues to come up short.

This tax is a constitutionally-protected fund, meaning that this money can only be used for roads and bridges.
