Two bills which provide state tax incentives to those who invest in high-risk businesses are now law. Governor Tom Vilsack signed the legislation into law this morning. Vilsack says Iowa has been a good place to do business, and he says these bills make it even better. The bill signing ceremony was staged in a high-tech telecommunications company’s office in a Des Moines suburb. Governor Vilsack doesn’t sound as if he’s inclined to outlaw amateur extreme fighting bouts. Eight legislators went to fight night at a Des Moines bar last night on a “fact-finding mission” as a bill proposes to ban the amateur sport. Vilsack says he isn’t armed with any facts. Vilsack says generally speaking, the less government interferes, the better… unless extreme fighting presents some danger to those who compete or watch.
