Public hearing on tax plan

8:01 p.m.:  "If there's another outburst, I'm under order from the speaker to clear the chamber," Rep. Paul Shomshor (D-Council Bluffs) just told the boisterous group of Iowans who've crowded into the Iowa House this evening to air their thougths on a tax plan Democrats are advancing.

The crowd — the majority of whom appear opposed to the legislation — have cheered and applauded speakers who have articulated their views in opposition to the proposal and they have booed and hissed at those who have spoken in favor of the plan.
