We’ve been fighting the good fight and our cause is still very much alive! As our Governor and State Senators and Representatives consider tax reform, this is the time to remind them of their responsibility to FUND THE TRUST and to encourage them to act.
BE PART OF OUR DAYS OF ACTION MARCH 19-MARCH 27
Contacting the Governor and Legislators on any of these days is great but we have designated March 26th as Clayton County Day for impact.
We want to deluge the Governor and elected representatives with this message:
It is time to heed the will of the people and fund the Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Trust as specifically formulated and approved by a clear majority of Iowans. Tax reform plans must include this.
COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS ON MARCH 26
- Use your own words but here are some additional talking points:
- 2/3 of Iowans support IWILL and the 3/8% sales tax that would raise about $180 million for natural resources
- Leave the formula in place – do not divert money from trails and land acquisition (find out more at http://www.iowaswaterandlandlegacy.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/The-Trust-Funds-Formula-2017-Update.pdf)
- Be courteous, respectful and positive

Please spread the word. Let’s make our DAYS OF ACTION huge!
