Take Action: Legislative and Policy Action Alerts

Tell Your Senator: Oppose SF 587 

added 3/25/2021

SF 587 (formerly SSB 1253), a wide-ranging tax bill that would repeal Iowa's Charitable Conservation Contribution Tax Credit and eliminate the state tax credit for conservation donations, has passed a Senate committee and ready to come to the floor anytime. In 2020 alone, nearly 3,500 acres across Iowa were permanently protected through charitable donations of land or land value for conservation. This includes land that will become parks, trails, and wildlife areas as well as private land that is permanently protected for agricultural uses, wildlife habitat, and scenic beauty. Your voice is needed once again to fight for public lands in Iowa. Let your Senators know you oppose the repeal of the conservation tax credit and ask them to oppose SF 587!

Tell Your Legislator: Expand the State Solar Tax Credit

added 2/12/2021

Solar installations are located in all 99 Iowa counties and help homeowners, businesses and farmers directly reduce their electricity bills with clean, renewable energy. 

Iowa’s solar credit has been oversubscribed since 2015, resulting in a growing waitlist every year. In 2020, 99.7% of the tax credit cap was committed before the year even started.

Iowa's solar investment tax credit has enabled new installations and has grown solar jobs. House File 221 would extend and increase funding for this successful program.
