Krusty Konservative: Odds and ends
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
Odd -- Iowans for Tax Relief scheduling a press conference in Des
Moines at the same time of former legislator Mary Lundby's funeral in
Cedar Rapids. Look, I know the world doesn't need to stop because of
her funeral but it's also good to show some respect whether you were a
fan of hers or not. Senator Gronstal and Speaker Murphy both showed
some class by canceling most of the committee meetings so people could
attend the services. So what was the big deal, ITR is following up on
President's Obama's pledge to provide more transparency in government.
They introduced the Iowa Taxpayer Transparency Act of 2009, basically
calling on the state to spend $40k on a website that would allow
people to see where their tax dollars are being spent.
