Lackluster state revenue projections are bad news for Iowans

December 13, 2018

A Statement from Sen. Joe Bolkcom, Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, on latest revenue estimates

“These lackluster figures are more evidence that the Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans are putting the interests of Wall Street corporations, special
interests and millionaires ahead of what’s best for working Iowans.
“The result is that the Governor and the Republican-controlled Legislature will continue to make job training and higher education unaffordable for thousands of Iowans, to reduce protections for seniors and other vulnerable Iowans, and to make health care less accessible
for thousands of Iowans for the next two years.”
