State Senators Discuss Tax Plan In Pella


Two State Senators spoke in Pella Friday morning. Senator Tom Reilly, Democrat from Oskaloosa and Senator Steve Sodders, Democrat from State Center spoke with about a dozen people at Smokey Row this morning. The two Senators discussed a plan currently working its way through the state house that would cut up to $200 million commercial property taxes. Sodders says the plan is aimed at small and medium sized businesses, those with fewer than 250 employees. The plan would begin with $50 million coming from an expected surplus this year from the state’s general fund, and would continue each year the general fund grows by at least 4%, up to a total of $200 million.
