Senate News By State Senator Julian B. Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. 2015 Budget Figures When the legislature convenes on January 13 we Will immediately begin work on the 2015 fiscal year budget. The process has already begun. The Revenue Estimating Con- ference meets each Decem- ber and estimates the rev- e aue that the State will re- c4i )e in the i/peofnTri ffs: cal )rear. The Conference issued its estimates on De- cember 12. By law we are not allowed to spend more than 99% of estimated rev- enue, although as we have seen, past legislatures have used various tactics to cir- cumvent the law. One of the first things that the House Appropriations Committee Republicans and the Governor agreed on in 2011, was that we would stop overspending. We have had surpluses ever since. The revenue estimate last December, for fiscal year 2015 that begins July 1, 2014, is just under $7 bil- lion. This compares to an estimate of $6.696 billion in revenue for the current fiscal year that will end June 30, 2014. This gives us an increase of nearly $300 million. Though this seems like a lot of money, there are increases already built into the budget that will use up this $300 mil- lion. The main increases are increased reimburse- ments to local govern- ments because of the prop- erty tax cuts passed last year, in the amount of $128.7 million and in- creased education spend- ing of $60 million. I have seen more than one esti- mate of the increase in 4VIedi6aid spending with the changes that are taking place. The increase could be more than $100 million. In iddition, it is estimated that Medicaid wilt be short $28 million for the current fiscal year. We are pro- jected to end fiscal 2014 with another surplus and we can end fiscal 2015 with a surplus if we con- tinue to exercise caution in our sperfding.
