Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, September 19, 2019 Senate News By State Senator Julian B. Garrett j ulian.garrett@legis.iowa.gov Fiscal 2020 State Revenue Net state revenue for the first 2 months of fiscal year 2020 comes to $1,525.7 million compared to $1,445 million for the first 2 months of fiscal 2019 that ended June 30, 2019. This is an increase of $80.7 million so far for fiscal 2020, or 5.6%. For those who prefer billions, the amounts are $1.5257 billion for fiscal 2020, and $1.445 billion for fiscal 2019. The largest revenue increase is in sales taxes with an increase of $49.3 million over fiscal 2019. Obviously, this indicates an increase of consumer purchases that generate sales tax revenue. We have a long way to go for fiscal 2020, but we are off to a good start. Elections Coming Up Though the general elections for federal and state offices will not be held until November of 2020, there are important elections being held this coming November. Both city council elections and school board elections will be held this November, for the first time. The legislature combined both elections hoping to get a bigger turn out that has occurred in the past with those elections being held on different dates. Usually, the turnout for both elections is very low even though they are very important. The deadlines for filing for these elections are imminent so we will soon know who all the candidates are. I urge you to do your research on the candidates and vote this November for these important positions. As always please feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns.

Real Food. Real Meat' campaign in partnership with Fareway Stores. The campaign will feature a variety of different elements, including a special month-long "Fill Your Freezer." The contest will feature a meat bundle, valued at $200, given away at each participating Iowa Fareway store. All of Fareway's 107 Iowa stores are participating, which means there will be 107 local prizes awarded, including ones in Warren County. Warren County has three Fareway stores, one in Carlisle, Indianola, and Norwalk. The contest continues through September 30th. "Our livestock farmers are the envy of the world, and we certainly know Iowans like what our farmers produce. Showcasing that support is important, especially at a time when shoppers face so many choices to put on the family table," said Craig Hill, a Warren County livestock farmer and IFBF president. '%re work hard to ensure all our livestock receives compassionate care. Our focus remains steadfast, in protecting the health of the animal and the integrity of the food that comes from that animal, which is served to your family and mine. This campaign will help increase awareness of those efforts and the overall value of animal protein." Experts agree that real meat stands above the rest as the best option for health and weightmaintenance. "Iowans have several options for protein in their diets today including vegetarian sources, but animal protein continues to be important because it is a high- quality or 'complete' protein containing all the essential amino acids," according to Ruth MacDonald, Iowa State University professor and chair of the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition. Meat is central to nutrition for Iowans. The 2019 Iowa Farm Bureau Food and Farm Index showed 96% of Iowa grocery shoppers eat meat at least weekly and 97% have cheese or dairy products at least once a week. "Thepopularity of meat and the integrity of animal agriculture brought Iowa Farm Bureau and Fareway together," Fareway CEO Reynolds Cramer said. "It's why we're proud to be a part of Farm Bureau's 'Real Farmers. Real Food. Real Meat.' campaign, to serve up support for our many hard-working farmers who put food on our family table." Iowans who want a chance to fill their freezers with $200 in free meat should look for the 'Real Farmers, Real Food, Real Meat' logo at their local Fareway store and go online at www.iowafarmbureau.com/ FillYourFreezer. To enter for a chance to win, Iowans will play an online game to learn more about livestock farming.
