Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association The Appel Report By Staci Appel, State Senator Session successes good for Iowa families, busi- nesses: The national reces- sion made the 2010 session one of tough decisions. I'm proud that, in the end, we responsibly balanced the budget without raising taxes and laid a solid foun- dation for Iowa's economic recovery. It wasn't easy. We made deep cuts in order to keep to our commitments to educational opportunity , affordable health care, re- newable energy, public safety and job creation. At the same time, we tkled the first major reorganiza- tion of state government in 25 years. The changes we made will stretch today's dollars and save hundreds of millions over the next five years. Highlights of the 2010 session include: Balancing the state budget without raising taxes. We finished the ses- sion with an ending bal- ance of $160 million and put a total of $200 million into our savings accounts. Saving money by re- organizing state govern- ment. By streamlining ser- vices and finding effiden- des, we're saving taxpay- ers more than $120 million this year. An early retire- ment plan for state em- ployees will save about $190 million over the next five years and an executive order from the Governor is giving the state an addi- tional $70 million in sav- ings. Preserving educa- tional opportunity in our schools. We invested in student achievement by increasing state aid to lo- cal schools by $145 million over last year, protecting dollars to recruit and keep great teachers in our class- rooms, expanding pre- school and making sure students graduate with the skills they need to land a good job. Maintaining afford- able higher education. To help keep tuition costs down, we increased state support for Iowa's com- munity colleges by $10 million and provided more than $550 million to our public universities. Expanding access to affordable health care. We will continue to be among the nation's leaders when it comes to children's health care. Now it will also be easier for rural resi- dents to access health care and for rural hospitals to be paid for the care they provide. In addition, in- surance companies will be required to give small businesses and Iowans more notification and more specific justification before increasing rates. Helping small busi- nesses grow. We made new low-interest loans Concluded p. 4 I Monumerrt 1514 North Lincoln, Suite C Knoxville, IA 641-828-7172 (Knoxville Insurance Building) Custom Memorials of granite and Bronze visit us at bertrandmnument'cm and online monument design Marion County's only locally owned Monument Shop OBITUARY IDA MARCELLA MILLER Services were held Thursday April 8, at Church of the Assumption in Churchville, for Ida Marcella Miller, 96, Norwalk, who died Sun- day, April 4, at Mercy Hos- pice in Johnston.
