Legislative Panel Wants Chat with Corbett on Sales Tax Proposal
Cedar Rapids Gazette

The panel's membership is evenly divided between House and Senate Republicans and Democrats. Rep. Tyler Olson, D-Cedar Rapids, one of four Linn County legislators on the task force, hopes that will help build bipartisan and bicameral support for Cedar Rapids' proposal.
"Maybe we can get consensus before this gets to the floor," he said.
Task force members have acknowledged Cedar Rapids' problem and are interested in finding a solution, Olson said, but have not yet made a commitment to support.
"I'm encouraged that we're meeting and have time to find a solution," Olson said. "We need to get something done this session."
