The Legislature’s top leader says lawmakers should get an earful this weekend at home as folks weigh in about a property tax plan touted by the Farm Bureau. That plan would do away with Tax Increment Financing districts that are used by cities to foster development, and instead would set a statewide tax rate. House Speaker Christopher Rants of Sioux City says Farm Bureau members, city council members, economic development leaders and others will likely approach lawmakers this weekend to ask questions about the plan. Rants expects the weekend public forums legislators attend to be “loud and boisterous.” Rants hasn’t made up his mind yet as to whether the Farm Bureau plan is right for his community.
