IOWA'S WATER & LAND LEGACY
SSB 3217 - the bill that increases the state sales tax and credits the amount to the Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund - was voted out of the Senate Ways & Means subcommittee this week with bipartisan support. The bill now moves on to the Senate Ways & Means full committee.
This bill cannot move forward without your help! Here's what we need you to do:
1. Contact members of the Senate Ways & Means committee THIS WEEK and ask for their support of SSB 3217. E-mail addresses and phone numbers for each member are attached.
2. Contact members of the House Ways & Means committee between now and next week. The House is currently working on their own bill, which is expected to be out soon.
3. Contact your local senators. We've set up a simple Take Action web page where you can enter your mailing address and automatically send a pre-written letter to your senator: http://iowaswaterandlandlegacy.org/sect ... egislators
Thank you for your support! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
