Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


This analysis estimates the impact of allowing same-sex couples to marry on Iowa's state budget. Using the best data available, we estimate that allowing same-sex couples to marry will result in a net gain of approximately $5.3 million each year for the State. This net impact will be the result of savings in expenditures on state means-tested public benefit programs and an increase in state income and sales tax revenue.
