Closing Contractor Loopholes

When private contractors, including Halliburton spin-off Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR), tried to avoid paying taxes by setting up foreign subsidiaries, Iowa PIRG, in federation with state PIRGs across the country, backed a new law to close that loophole and another law requiring contractors to pay back taxes before being awarded new contracts.
