Iowa lawmakers advance military pension bill



Legislation that would exempt military pensions from state income tax is moving rapidly through the Iowa Senate.



A Senate committee approved the legislation during a brief hearing Thursday. It is expected to soon move to the full Senate for a vote.



Sen. Herman Quirmbach, a Democrat from Ames, says the bill honors veterans and may attract more military retirees to the state.



The military pension exemption is a top priority for Republican Gov. Terry Branstad, who has made support for veterans a key part of his budget plan this year.



According to the Branstad administration, the pension exemption would cost the state a projected $10 million in lost annual revenue.
