2015 Cedar Valley Legislative Agenda for Economic Progress has been released. The agenda is substantially the same as last year with modifications to address specific issues of interest to the Cedar Valley, and larger issues that will likely come up of state wide interest, such as:
a) Support funding for University Avenue reconstruction
b) Removing prohibition on IRD plan changes after 2018.
c) Increase funding for the Strategic Infrastructure Fund.
d) Enable schools to use Local Option Sales Tax for Schools beyond 2029
e) Support the Board of Regents’ funding plan that emphasizes in-state student enrollments.
f) Support new or alternative sources of funding highway and bridge repair such as a fuel tax increase or alternative means of levying taxes on fuels.
