Box 325, Norwalk, IA50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett julian.garrett@legis.state.ia.us New Debate Over Obamacare Wording Since the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare was issued, a new issue has surfaced. Under the law, states are given a period of time to setup insurance exchanges. Insurance exchanges are meant to be one-stop clearing houses where individuals and employers can compare features and premiums of competing Qualified Health Plans. If the state does not set up an exchange, the fed- eral government will step in and set one up in the state. The debate is over a provision of the law concerning subsidies to low and middle income people to help them pay the premium to help meet the requirement that ev- eryone be covered by a health insurance plan. The law as written provides for the subsidy to be provided to those enrolled through an exchange established by the State, but does not mention an exchange established by the federal government. Since several states have stated that they will not participate in the program and will not set up exchanges, this could be an important point. The federal government has issued a rule allowing sub- sidies to those enrolled in either a state or federal change. The IRS says that this was a drafting mistake and that Congress did not intend to deny the subsidy to those states operating under a federally-established ex- change. Others say that this is overreaching on the part of the federal government, in violation of the dear mean- ing of the law as drafted. Some House members are drafting a bill to nullify the rule. The rule could be chal- lenged in court, but it might take some time for some- one to obtain "standing" to challenge the rule. Madison County Farm Bureau I enjoyed attending the Madison County Farm Bu- reau annual meeting last week. It was great to see a lot of old friends and to meet some new ones. More than one person jokingly asked if the Legislature could do something about the weather. Farmers are suffering more than most from the prolonged drought. Iam a long time Farm Bureau member. I appreciate the good work the organization does. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or by email at julian.garre tt@legis.state.ia.us.

Box 160 Norwalk, Iowa www.kwky.com AL LAMMERS FALL FEST Concluded from p. 1 Will allow a view of all activities that have been sched- uled in each building and the specific facility in each of the buildings district-wide. This will be a very impor- tant link for any groups who will want to reserve any school facility and determining the facility availability. The Athletic/Activities Office will direct those who have not yet looked at the facilities calendar to do so before submitting requests. The facilities calendar can be found at the following link: http://fs-norwalk.rschoolto day.com/calendar/index/index/viewtype/6. Both the Ac- tivity and Facility links can also be found on the Activi- ties page of the school website as well. For external groups school facilities are available after 7 p.m. during the weekdays and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the weekends. As a reminder, the prioritization of facility scheduling are as follows: school programs, parks and recreation, programs and external requests. Norwalk Family Activity Passes will once again be available to those interested in purchasing them. Fam- ily passes are valid for both parents and any students in grades K through 5th. As a reminder, students must be accompanied by an adult when a family activity pass is used for admission. Single Adult Activity Passes are also available. The purchase of a student activity pass is, as it always has been, optional for the student. A reminder that student activity passes for next year can be pur- chased for $35, grades 6 through 12. However, due to our student ID card and processing system of these cards, we are requesting that all activity passes be pur- chased during the registration period or prior to Au- gust 13. If an activity pass is purchased after this date, an additional fee of $10 will be charged to cover the cost of a duplicate card that will include the activities pass. Family Activity Passes will cost $190 and Single Activity Passes are $90. These passes may be purchased in the Athletic Office at Norwalk High School or at the district-wide registration evenings. Activity passes are also available as part of a Norwalk Athletic Booster Club membership. Gold Passes are available for senior citi- zens free of charge. Any retired senior is eligible to ob- tain a Gold Pass for admission to all activities. All passes may be purchased or obtained during the district-wide registration evenings on August 6 and August 9 from 4 to 7.p.m. at Eastview Cafeteria at the Athletic/Activities Office table.
