The Real Sporer: Vox Populi

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

We Republicans convened on a District wide basis today. Perhaps the
most interesting occurrence was the passage of the following platform
amendment in every one of the five Districts: "Resolved: We oppose any
efforts to take away Iowans' right to vote on our local option sales
tax (SILO) that eliminate local control of SILO and replace it with a
permanent 20% statewide sales tax increase which puts school
infrastructure funds at great risk of being raided by state government
and expands taxation of Iowa small businesses." Obviously the SILO
debate in the House was somewhat contentious over the last few weeks
and our Caucus was certainly not unified at the end. The issue now
goes to the Senate.
