Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to Governor Reynolds’ condition of the state address today:

Iowans are happy to pay our fair share for our schools, roads, health care, and clean drinking water, but we are disappointed and fed up with her raising taxes on hardworking Iowans while cutting taxes for the wealthy and giving away hundreds of millions to companies like Apple and Facebook.
