Letter: Tax breaks should be reviewed

I am in agreement with Rep. Ashley Hinson as noted in The Gazette’s March 5 editorial “Too many tax breaks.”

Our legislators have been listening to special interests and giving our tax moneys away without proper review and vetting.

Seven million dollars for massage therapy? Come on! Ten million dollars for grain drying? One hundred and thirty seven million for packaging containers? It goes on and on.

At least review and submit an explanation. I know, I know, it means votes for re-election, but please be a good Iowan and go along with Rep. Hinson.

Good job, Rep. Hinson.
