Iowa governor calls for sales tax increase, other tax cuts

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa Gov Kim Reynolds is asking lawmakers to consider increasing the state sales tax by 1 cent to fund increased spending on water quality, the environment and mental health care programs.

To offset the tax increase she's proposing an income tax cut of 10% and a property tax cut.

Reynolds made the proposals in her annual Condition of the State address delivered to lawmakers Tuesday.

Reynolds is again calling for a constitutional amendment to allow felons to vote upon completing their sentences and an amendment declaring there is no right to an abortion under the Iowa Constitution.
