(Des Moines) There are strong opinions on issues like a gas tax proposal and healthcare insurance exchanges being brought to the statehouse this morning for the start of the session.
Representative Jack Drake, of Griswold, representing the 57th District says the gas tax is a tough one for him.
"That is a difficult issue for me. I know we have a big demand for the roads, and I haven't talked too... many of my constituents, but those that I have talked to are reluctanct to raise the gas tax."
Representative Drake is also concerned over strong arm tactics being taken by the humane society of the United States and will be paying attention to those issues closely.
