the one-penny state sales tax, which funds school infrastructur e, to generate money to adadess water quality in iowa. "i think the big concern is we don't have a long-term reliable source of funding for that," said branstad. "that's where sharing in this sales tax growth gives us a long- term, reliable source of funding for what i think is already a good strategy." administration officials say the first $10 million in new revenue, each year, would go to schools. the remaining would go to water quality programs. "so, it's significant growth on top of what schools are already getting plus providing a share of that growth to water quality," branstad said. how much more? an additional $20.7-billion for school infrastructur e, and nearly $4.7-billion for water ququity. "critics in the legislature say the penny tax was approved at the local level to help local schools before it was modified to help all schools equally," said matt breen. "and, moving that money robs iowans of the chance to vote on the new direction."
