Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. Thoughts on Education Spending With all the controversy on education spending in the just concluded legislative session, several often ignored facts are relevant. Nationally, school spending per stu- dent has increased greatly over the last 40 years or so, but test scores have remained stagnant. Iowa Democrats constantly complain that Iowa's per pupil spending is well below the national average. They ignore the fact that when cost of living is taken into account, Iowa is roughly at the national average. National studies show that there is no particular correlation between spending per pupil and test scores among the various states. Anyone wanting to look at the studies can find the information by searching the internet for "school spending by state" and "education test scores by state." Bills I Introduced You may not be surprised to learn that I sponsored or co'sponsored a number of bills that received no consideration in the Senate. Here are some of them: SF 65- Requires that if a state agency is promulgating a rule required by federal law, the explanation shall identify the federal law or regulation requiring the rule and specify the consequences for failure to adopt the rule. SF 121- Requires that the reasons that state employees are terminated or state employee bonuses are paid, be made public, along with any settlement agreements for terminated employees. SF 231- Requires that iowa employers use the federal e-verify system to be sure that persons they are hiring are in the country legally and can be legally hired. SF 239- Restores the death penalty for those kidnapping, sexually abusing and murdering a minor. SF 390- Provides that the identity of those persons holding non-professional per- mits to carry weapons be kept confidential. SJR 10- A proposed amendment to the Iowa Constitution limiting spending to the lesser of 99% of the revenue estimate for the coming fiscal year, or 104% of estimated revenue for the current fiscal year. SJR 11- An amendment placing the right to keep and bear arms into the Iowa Constitution.
