24-Hour Dorman: Jumpin' Jack K wants a gas, gas tax

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Iowa Senate President Jack Kibbie, D-Emmetsburg, opened the 2009
session with a call for increasing the gas tax: "I support efforts
that result in a gas tax increase. Success in that endeavor will mean
better roads, jobs, and an economic boost to Iowa's families and
communities." ... Kibbie is an old school Democrat who drove a tank in
the Korean War and doesn't do shades of gray. He served in the Senate
in 1965, when Democrats took over the Statehouse and tackled little
stuff like abolishing capital punishment, passing a state civil rights
law, cutting the number of school districts in half, creating the
community college system and reforming the Legislature. He doesn't
take polls to see where he stands on issues.
