Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. EPA Delays Ethanol Decision The federal EPA has delayed a decision on a proposal that would cut the amount of ethanol required to com- ply with the Renewable Fuels Standard by three billion gallons. The decision has been pending for about a year and the fact that the EPA is going to reconsider its pro- posal is causing some optimism among renewable fuel supporters. They believe that if the proposal was going to be implemented, there would be no reason for the delay. Obviously, a decision requiring more use of re- newable fuels would have a positive impact on grain prices. That would cause a positive ripple throughout the Iowa economy. Regents Universities to Cut Costs The Board of Regents has directed the three Regents Universities to change the way they operate human re- sources, information technology and finance operations. The goal is to cut 250 jobs and save millions of dollars. The University of Iowa is looking at providing early retirement incentives for long time employees. The pro- gram likely would be modeled after a 2009-2010 pro- gram that provided incentives for employees who had worked for the University for at least 10 years and who had reached the ageof 55. The other schools have not announced how they might proceed to meet the new requirements. A review of academic programs could result in changes in course offerings also, with the goal of saving more money. It may be that better coordination among the three schools could result in efficiencies that could help hold down costs. This would help with the goal of freezing tuitions or keeping increases at a minimum. Tuitions have been frozen for the past two years.
