Groups ask Iowa Governor for tax increase

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad
says that he would consider a increase in state taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel but only under certain conditions.
The money would be used to help cover a $215 million shortfall in annual funding for improvements and maintenance on Iowa's roadways.
A spokesman for the governor says that he would consider a tax, but only if it is part of a overall tax reform package that would reduce taxes for all Iowans.
