"so, i know its a priority of minn to get that done as soon as we possibly can." "lawmakers will also contend with governor terrr branstad's plan to extend the state's penny sales tax to generate billions of dollars for education and water quality," said matt breen. "but, some members of the governor's own party don't support the plan." like senator david johnson, of ocheyedan. "number one, those taxes were approved at a local level first before it went statewide," said sen. david johnson, (r) ocheyedan. "so, in one respect we are taking away a local vote if we were to move that money." second, johnson says it won't be enough. the republican has written a bill which would add a 3/8 f a cent sales tax to generate money for a dedicated natural resources fund. "i don't know how better we can do it," johnson said. fellow senate republican randy feenstra, of hull, says water quality is important, but he maintains a new tax isn't the answer. "i don't think raising taxes is a good idea at this point," sen. randy feenstra, (r) hull said. few lawmakers would disagree. it's a election year for every member of the house, and a third of the members of the senate.

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 quality. "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." branstad says he understands those concerns. but, when looking at the best ways to fund water quality and education, branstad says his plan is better that the alternative.
