Republicans question Hatch's legislative record

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Republicans are accusing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jack Hatch of using his legislative position to halt a bill that could have impacted his development business.

Iowa Republican Party Chairman Jeff Kaufmann said Tuesday that as a state senator, Hatch sought to kill a bill that would have limited fees for developers receiving federal tax credits to build low-income housing.

Hatch's development company has built projects using these tax credits. Hatch's campaign called the accusations false, but declined to answer specific questions.

The bill cited by Republicans was referred to a subcommittee chaired by Hatch in 2013. The panel never met, meaning the bill did not advance.

A recent investigation by The Des Moines Register found that Hatch had followed development rules and had taken votes for and against his self-interest.
