DES MOINES, IOWA (October 15, 2021) Governor Kim Reynolds has released the following statement today in response to the Revenue Estimating Conference projections:

“The REC forecast released today shows that Iowa’s economy has come back strong in the wake of the pandemic because we kept our businesses open,” Gov Reynolds said. “It also reaffirms the need to cut taxes and return the overcollection of tax-payer dollars. I’ll be working with my team and legislative leaders to introduce legislation that will build upon our previous historic tax-cuts and will continue to return to Iowans their hard-earned money while ensuring our state prospers and grows.”
