Governor Terry Branstad has signed the Home Base Iowa act into law.

The bill is designed to make Iowa more attractive to soldiers leaving the military and eliminates state income taxes on military pensions for soldiers and their surviving spouses.

It also makes it easier for soldiers to earn academic credit for their military training and experience, if they decide to seek a degree at an Iowa college or university.

In addition, state boards will now be required to take into account a soldier’s military skills when the soldier applies for a professional license.
