DES MOINES, IOWA (March 19, 2021) – Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement on the Revenue Estimating Conference’s recent projections:

“Today’s forecast shows that Iowa’s economy is strong, and we can make it even stronger by ensuring that our historic 2018 tax-cuts are fully implemented, giving Iowans certainty that they’ll see more in their paychecks. We can easily do that by removing the unnecessary triggers, which are no longer needed, and only stand in the way of our future growth.

“I was pleased that the Senate voted unanimously to remove these triggers and look forward to signing the final bill making these significant tax cuts a reality for Iowans.”
