Sales tax proposed for disaster recovery

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A local option sales-tax could help pay for Iowa's disaster recovery.

Under a bill introduced in the Iowa Senate Monday, Iowa communities would be able to put a local-option sales tax to voters as a way to pay for recovery. It requires an election March 3rd to impliment the tax in April. Any community in a county declared a presidential disaster area last year is eligible, that includes all of eastern Iowa.
