The governor of Nebraska says he doesn’t think a proposal by Iowa’s governor to offer tax incentives to lure or keep Iowans in the state will work. Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack is proposing the incentives for certain professions like teachers and engineers. Speaking on K-S-C-J radio in Sioux City, Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns says it’s the wrong type of incentive.Johanns says when you offer incentives to one employee and leave another out, you have the ingredients for a failed policy. Johanns, a republican, says the quality of life in the midwest should be enough incentive for people to move here.Vilsack’s proposal is part of a plan to keep Iowa’s talented graduates in the state and to lure back those who’ve left for other states.
