Don’t extend SAVE in Iowa – the school infrastructure sales tax

School districts in Iowa are lobbying hard to extend the SAVE one percent sale tax that goes to fund school infrastructure.  The current tax does not end until 2029!  Why do school districts want to extend the tax now, when they still have tax money coming in for about 11 more years?   It is because they have already spend all of their future sales tax revenues through bonding.  Many metropolitan school districts already have beautiful facilities, and several central Iowa school districts just passed school bond referendums to pay for additional new facilities.  We now need to get back to letting the individual school districts, and their own taxpayers, decide whether or not they need additional tax money.  Contact your state legislators and urge them to oppose this future tax increase.
