Raceway Rebate passes the House

Steve Woodhouse

Des Moines — Rep. Greg Heartsill reports that the bill to provide up to $2 million in sales tax rebates to the Knoxville Raceway has passed out of the Iowa House of Representatives, 78-15. 

The bill now moves on to the Senate. Sen. Amy Sinclair has previously said there is a great deal of support in the Senate for the rebate.

The funding is intended to assist the Marion County Fair Association in making upgrades to the Knoxville Raceway and fairgrounds.
