DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two major provisions of the Republican tax cut bill won't happen until Iowa meets revenue targets that critics say may take many years. Eliminating so-called "federal deductibility" and raising the state's standard deduction, along with further dropping tax rates, won't happen until the state reaches a certain amount of tax revenue and shows significant growth in the previous year. Those changes could happen no sooner than 2023.

He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died. In two other separate shootings early Saturday, three other people suffered injuries not believed to be life threatening.
