Gov. Branstad talks gas tax, manufacturing in Mount Ayr
MOUNT AYR — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds visited Mount Ayr Tuesday for a town hall meeting, and Branstad touched on local issues of gas taxes, infrastructure and manufacturing.
“Resistance to the gas tax is really strong,” Branstad said. “The public is against it, about two to one. Plus, gas prices — now they’ve gone down a bit lately — but gas prices are extremely high, and it’s a burden for people to commute to work. So, we’re looking at other things that we can do that would provide money for the road-use tax fund other than the gas tax.”
