Garrett julian.garrett@legis.iowa.gov National Apprenticeship Week November 11- 17 is National Apprenticeship Week. Here in Iowa Governor Reynolds is promoting the program. We are promoting apprenticeship programs in Iowa to help employers who are looking for trained employees, and to offer training to Iowans who can get on the job training to learn the skills that the employer is looking for. The legislature appropriated $1 million to help with the program. There is also some federal money available. According to Governor Reynolds, there are 747 registered programs serving more than 7,600 apprentices here in Iowa. Upon completing their training these employees earn more than $60,000 on average. Given Iowa’s low unemployment rate this program makes a lot of sense from the point of View of both the employer and employee. There is more information on the program at www.earnandlearniowa.gov. 2019 Election Turnout We just finished voting for city council and school board candidates as you know. In Warren County we also voted on the additional bond money for the courthouse. This is the first year that we have voted in these elections on the same day. In the past, school board elections were held in September and city council elections were held in November. In Warren and Madison Counties, and I expect statewide, the turnout this year was larger, especially in the school board elections. The Secretary of State reports that in Warren County 7,077 ballots were cast in the just completed election and in Madison County there were 1,942 votes cast. In 2017 there were about 1,800 votes cast in the school board elections in Warren County. In Madison County there were a little over 500 votes cast in the 2017 school board elections. The new law obviously made a huge difference in voter turnout for the school board elections. The difference is not so large for the city council elections. As always, please feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns. Parking-Only Rest Area in Warren County to Temporarily Close The Iowa Department of Transportation is announcing the temporary closure of the undeveloped rest area at milepost 51 on southbound Interstate 35 in Warren County beginning November 18, 2019. The rest area is used mostly by commercial motor carriers. Because the ramp from the rest area to I-35 is on an incline, large vehicles often have trouble getting traction to merge onto I-35 during winter weather, causing a dangerous situation on the roadway. The rest area is expected to reopen in late April 42020. The closure is set to begin at 9:00 am. on November 18th but you can watch www.51 1ia.org for any change to that schedule.

Known as “UNI at DMACC,” the new 2 2 program is designed for students to Complete their first two years at DMACC, with the remaining two years completed through UNI on the DMACC Urban Campus. Students graduating from the program will earn a Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. Designed to make degree completion easier for DMACC students by eliminating the obstacles of relocation, the program will prepare even more students for careers that require a four-year degree. The partnership, developed by DMACC President Rob Denson and UNI President Mark Nook, was announced Wednesday at the DMACC campus as the result of more than a year of conversations centering around how to make a bachelor’s degree more convenient for the 5,000 students enrolled at the DMACC Urban Campus. The program will begin in the fall of 2020, pending approval by the Iowa Board of Regents. The University of Northern Iowa’s Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree is designed for students who have completed a two-year degree and need a rigorous and flexible program that employers value. Initially, courses will be offered in an online format with staff present to support students in all aspects of the program. The potential exists to expand to additional offerings between the two schools. “The Liberal Studies degree at DMACC’s Urban Campus is a demonstration of our commitment to finding new ways of bringing a four-year degree to students across the state of Iowa, no matter their location,” said Nook. “This degree has large employability and opens many doors for graduates. We are grateful for our long partnership with DMACC and are excited to provide an accessible education to Des Moines-based students through this innovative program.” Many of DMACC Urban students are place-bound and not able to relocate to continue their education. DMACC Urban is the first public majority-minority college campus in Iowa, with a 52% percent population of students of color, and the average age of its student body is 28. This partnership will allow these students to gain the advantages of a four-year degree without having to leave their jobs, families and communities.
