Thursday, February 14, 2019 N/Warren Town and County News Page Five Legislative Newsletter Stan Gustafson Iowa House Representative District 25 stan.gustafson@legis.iowa.gov February 7th, 2019 HSB114: I frequently get emails about protecting our pets from abusive situations. HSB114 has been drafted for this purpose and has been assigned to a study committee for review. Here is a link to the bill so that you can read the Bill and follow its progress through the Legislature: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/ ' legislation/BillBook?ga=88&ba=hsb114 Education: There has been concern that education funding has not kept up with inflation. Since the 2011-12 school year, Investment in K- 12 education has increased by $765 million, or about 30%. Over that same time, the rate of inflation is 10.96% according to the Midwest Consumer Price Index. What does that mean? Funding for schools has increased at nearly triple the rate of inflation! This has resulted in: More teachers: 3,100 new full-time teachers hired to staff Iowa classrooms. Smaller class sizes: A lower student-teacher ratio every year, even while enrollment has increased. Competitive teacher pay: Average teacher pay has increased to almost $59,000 statewide which is among the highest in the country when adjusted for cost-of-living. The House is planning to debate the K-12 package for school year 2019-20 on the floor next week, fulfilling our obligation to set school funding within the first 30 days of session. This will provide schools with the certainty and time necessary to set their budgets. The House plan includes an additional $89.3 million in new funding for Iowa’s K-12. Increases include $7.8 million to reduce transportation costs for rural schools. This will ensure more dollars make their way into the classroom, and $2.9 million to reduce the cost per pupil gap by $5 per student. This continues to reduce a long-time inequity that has existed in the school funding formula since the 1970s. We are also looking at additional opportunities for education such as extending the school infrastructure tax (SAVE), improving school safety efforts, and greater flexibility for school boards and administrators. Judicial Nominating Reforms: There has been much press coverage about another top priority this session to bring more fairness and accountability to Iowa’s merit-based judicial selection process. Under the merit process, nominating commissions interview candidates for open judge positions and recommend the three most highly-qualified individuals for the Governor to choose from. These commissions are made up of people appointed by the Governor and lawyers who are elected by other lawyers. Attorneys will continue to be a part of the process. Attorneys bring an important perspective to this discussion and we value their input. These reforms still require that half the members of the commissions are attorneys. Under the reforms, the Governor will continue 'to select half of the members on the nominating commissions and legislative leaders from 11%}; parties will select the other half. Nominating commissions will continue to identify the best and brightest candidates to ensure that the best people become judges. These reforms should bring more representation to Iowa’s nominating commissions and provide greater transparency to Iowa’s merit-based judicial selection process. ‘ Mental Health: This past July, with a $4 million investment from the state, Broadlawns/UnityPoint Des Moines and Mercy Des Moines started psychiatry residency programs. These programs have placed a high emphasis on. interviewing candidates that have Iowa connections, with the goal of them putting down roots and continuing to practice in Iowa after they have completed their residency. The health systems will also be working with their rural affiliates to provide tele-psychiatry throughout the entire state.
