Iowa Senator Wants to Protect Innocent People's Property from the Clutches of Forfeiture

Nearly a year after The Des Moines Register's groundbreaking investigative report on abuse of Iowa's civil asset forfeiture laws, legislation was introduced in the Iowa Senate to reform the state's forfeiture laws to protect innocent property owners from this pernicious form of government overreach. Unfortunately, it appears lawmakers want to further study the issue before they consider changes.

Iowa Lawmakers Propose Increase in Gas Tax

Lawmakers and lobbyists in Iowa are pushing for an additional 10 cent per gallon gasoline tax, on top of the 21 cent gas tax already in place.

This proposed tax would be particularly cruel since the average gas price in Iowa is a whopping $3.70 per gallon.
