Popular Progressive: Iowa House and Senate Pass E-Bill

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

Despite being voted against by our two area Representatives (Mary
Mascher and Vicki Lensing), the Iowa House has followed the lead of
the Senate and approved a proposed constitutional amendment to
dedicate a portion of future sales tax increases to the environment.
If the constitutional amendment is approved, the Legislature could
create a 3/8-cent sales tax to fund those efforts. The tax would go to
such efforts as protecting natural areas of the state, cleaning up
Iowa waterways and funding parks, trails, fish and wildlife habitats
and soil conservation.
