BOOSTING IOWA TRANSPORTATION Iowa income in the transportation field gains substantially, from the growing expenditures made here by the brewing industry. Over $6,640,000.00 per year is spent in this state for such transportation costs—including more than $3,467,000.00 , for railway and truck transport in Iowa, and over $3,173,000.00 for local trucking from wholesalers to retailers.
