Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after Governor Terry Branstad vetoed a state bill that would have given taxbreaks to Iowans making $45,000 or less:

"I'm disappointed by Governor Branstad's veto, and I have to ask, "what are his priorities?" This bill was passed with bipartisan support and would have provided tax relief to thousands of hard-working Iowa families. This doesn't make sense to me, and I don't think it makes sense to middle class Iowans who are struggling."
