Davenport voters reject sales tax


DAVENPORT (KWWL) -- Davenport voters have defeated a measure to use a local option sales tax there to offer free college tuition to all high school graduates living in the city.

Unofficial results from Tuesday's election show 61 percent of voters did not favor the idea.

Supporters argued the plan would help the city grow by attracting more families, but critics say the plan should be privately funded.
