Garrett [ Appropriations Process Begins Though most bills that we have passed recently have been relatively non-controversial, we have also begun working on budget bills, most of which are controver- sial. We have passed three in the House so far. They are the Transportation budget, the bill funding various state agencies and the Education budget. The Education bud- get includes money for the State Board of Regents, the College Student Aid Commission and the Department for the Blind. This part of the budget does not include the money for K-12 education. That budget is an ongo- ing appropriation and the legislature has the option of providing for "allowable growth" for K-12. The "growth" includes money from property taxes as well as state money. This year in the House we passed a supplemental appropriation of 2% in place of allowable growth in the education reform bill. This would be all state money with no increase in property taxes. These bills go to the Senate. Though the Transportation budget was passed by a unanimous vote, the other two were passed on strict party line votes. It appears that the pattern that we have seen over the past two years will continue. The House Republicans propose an appropriation in a given bud- get area and the Democrats propose numerous amend- ments to increase spending, Their amendments are voted down and the bills then pass on party line votes. This year House Republicans have proposed overall budget targets with a modest 3% increase over last year, spending 98% of ongoing revenue. The Senate Demo- crats are proposing an 11% increase, spending 105% of ongoing revenue. The House Democrats apparently will continue their practice from prior years of proposing amendments to increase spending to be more in line with the Senate Democrat budget targets. We may have another lengthy session because House Republicans are committed to spending less on ongoing expenses than the state receives in revenue, just as we did in the last two years. Expanding DNA Sampling Presently a DNA sample is taken from a person con- victed of a felony. We have passed House File 527 pro- riding for taking a DNA sample from a person convicted of an aggravated misdemeanor also. Persons convicted of driving offenses punishable as aggravated misde- meanors are exempted. The DNA sample is usually taken by a swab of the inside of the mouth. The samples become part of a database of those convicted of crimes. The bill now goes to the Senate. Norwalk Forum My next forum will be at the Norwalk City Hall Sat- urda34 April 6. I will discuss issues before the legisla- ture. Questions and comments from those attending are welcome. Everyone is invited. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or Julian.Garrett@legis. iowa.gov.
