Garrett Nutrient Reduction Practices Cost share funds are available to help farmers mini- mize the loss of nutrients from their farms. Nutrient loss generally means the loss of water soluble plant nutri- ents such as nitrogen. The funds are available through the office of Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. Priorities for this fall are cover crops, no-till or strip till, or using a nitrification inhibitor when applying fertil- izer. The cost share rate is $25 per acre for planting cover crops, $10 for no till or strip till and $3 for using a nitri- fication inhibitor when applying fertilizer. The Cost share is available for up to 160 acres. Farmers can contact their local Soil and Water Conservation District office for more information or to apply. Only farmers not already using these practices are eligible. Election Integrity Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz has released a signed memorandum between his office and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security allowing him to use the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program that keeps track of the legal status of immigrants. The purpose of the SAVE program is to provide federal, state and local agencies with informa- tion on the immigration status of benefit applicants, so that those who are not eligible will not be given them. It took about a year to get the Department of Homeland Security to agree to provide access to its database. Schultz has been working to insure that only those legally entitled to vote are doing so. He wants access to the SAVE information to provide an additional safe- guard when investigating more than 1,000 registered voters in Iowa, who may not be citizens. Under the agreement before a voter can be removed from the voter rolls, he or she will be given the opportunity to show that they are actually citizens. In an attempt to provide the Secretary of State with an additional tool to fight voter fraud, we in the House passed a bill to require voters to present a photo ID be- fore voting. The Senate did not pass the bill, however As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or Julian.Garrett@legis .iowa.gov.
