State Looking to Entice Veteran’s to Make Iowa Home

As previously reported by KNIA/KRLS News, lawmakers in Des Moines are looking for ways to entice current, and former members of the military to make their home in Iowa. Last week the state senate voted 46 to zero to exempt military pension pay from income tax. Senator Ken Roozenboom tells KNIA/KRLS that he believes this is very significant issue, and he suspects the state House of Representatives will approve it as well. He adds that it’s not only important to support our veterans, but it’s an important job resource for Iowa since they bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and education to the table which is an economic benefit to the state.
