Keeping Iowa's Young Folks at Home After They've Seen Minnesota

Iowa ponders eliminating the state income tax for everyone under 30.

One state legislator, quoted in The Minneapolis Star Tribune, said: "Let's face it. Des Moines will never be Minneapolis." He might have added that Council Bluffs would never be Kansas City. Another Iowan, when asked what the state needed to keep its young people, said, "An ocean would help." This is the kind of big thinking Iowa has always been famous for.

David, you must have a comment on this...and I have to ask: were you aware--before you moved--of the added benefit of no income tax in South Dakota?
