GAS TAX: Group Spreads Message Through Billboards
Billboards are going up across the state to send a message to lawmakers.
The Iowa Good Roads Association is behind the $100,000 campaign.
The signs will go up in 18 Iowa communities including Des Moines, Adel, Knoxville, Greenfield and Pella.
The group is pushing legislation going through the Iowa House that would raise the gas tax by 10-cents over the next three years. That money would be used to fix the state’s crumbling infrastructure.
Attempts to pass similar legislation have failed at the Statehouse in the past several years.
