Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. Governor Presents Budget Governor Branstad has already presented his bud- get recommendations. He proposes to spend roughly $7 billion for fiscal year 2015 that begins July 1, 2014. The Appropriations subcommittees have already begun meeting to consider their respective parts of the bud- get. I am the ranking member (meaning the lead Re- publican) on the Justice Systems Appropriation Subcom- mittee, on the Senate side. Each of the budget subcom- mittees is a joint House and Senate committee with a Republican chair from the House and a Democrat chair from the Senate. We will be considering that part of the budget that covers the prison systems, the courts, the Highway Patrol, the Attorney General and a few other agencies that deal with justice and public safety. Tax Free Veterans' Pensions As a part of his State of the State address, the Gover- nor proposed eliminating the state income tax on veter- ans" pensions. This proposal is part of his Home Base Iowa initiative to attract veterans to Iowa. The exemp- tion would be retroactive to January 1, 2014. Iowa law now exempts pension income for those 55 years old or older, or disabled, up to $6,000 per person or $12,000 per married couple, from the state income tax. There are no age or other requirements in the Governor's new proposal. Support for Biofuels I was pleased to co-sponsor a resolution that passed unanimously in the Senate calling on the federal EPA not to change the Renewable Fuela3tandard passed in 2007. Iowa legislators believe that biofuels are an im- portant part of our efforts to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Also, any reduction in the use o-f biofuels would have a negative impact on our Iowa economy. We could see still lower commodity prices and perhaps a decrease in land values. It is unfortunate that the na- tional administration seems to be backing off its sup- port for biofuels. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns. c.tac~t~anofl~Onv~ .
