Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy is bringing Iowans together in support of immediate, permanent, reliable, substantial funding aimed at improving our water quality, protecting our soil, enhancing our wildlife habitat, and increasing outdoor recreation opportunities throughout Iowa. With a small increase in our state’s sales tax, we can fund the trust to preserve Iowa for generations. In the attached pictures are Dennis and Forrest with Rep. Art Stead, Rep Kirsten Running-Marquardt and Todd Taylor. Great job Linn County PF in advocating for our communities!
