Local Chambers Release Legislative Priorities I met with representatives of the Indianola, Norwalk and Carlisle Chambers of Commerce December 10. They invited local office holders to meet and discuss legisla- tive priorities. The Warren County Chambers are affili- ated with the Greater Des Moines Partnership, an orga- nization representing the Chambers of Commerce in the cities in the Greater Des Moines area. Among their leg- islative priorities are: The Partnership supports the creation and funding of a biochemical production tax credit to aid the expan- sion of the bio economy and create new jobs in the Cul- tivation Corridor. The Partnership supports implementing the Iowa Core to establish statewide 21st Century learning stan- dards and comprehensive student achievement assess- ments aligned to globally competitive critical learning skills. The Partnership supports the priorities of Connect Iowa, which is working to ensure that all Iowans have more access to broadband, which will drive economic growth. The Partnership supports full funding for the Nat- ural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund, which will go toward creati;ag and maintaining parks, trails, habitats and waterways. The Partnership supports a broad-based review of Iowa's public pension plans to assure retirement secu- rity for public employees while limiting future growth in pension debt. The Partnership supports finding new or alterna- tive sources of surface transportation revenue, includ- ing an incremental increase in the fuel tax and contin- ued improvements to the existing Road Use Tax Fund. The Partnership supports giving businesses and individuals the option of either retaining the ability to deduct federal income taxes or choosing to forego fed- eral deductibility in exchange for significantly reduced state income tax. I am sure most of these recommendations will be dis- cussed when we convene in January. Some have been discussed in the past. Committee Assignments Committee assignments for the upcoming legislative session have been announced. I am very pleased with my assignments. I will be serving on the Appropriations, Judiciary, Human Services and Government Oversight Committees. In addition, I will serve on the Justice Sys- tems Appropriations Subcommittee. These are the same as last session except Human Resources has been add- ed. I am the Ranking Republican on the Government Oversight and Justice Systems Appropriations Subcom- mittee, as I was last session. Meeting With Farm Bureau Leaders I met with leaders of the Warren and Madison Coun- ty Farm Bureaus December 16. They meet annually with local legislators to discuss Farm Bureau's priorities for the upcoming legislative session. The state Farm Bureau passes resolutions on many subjects at its annual meet- ing in September. Among those issues discussed at the meeting were the following: 1. There was a lot of discussion on the need for more funding for road and bridge repairs. 2. Farm Bureau's priorities for state budgeting are "agriculture, conservation, property tax credits, K-12 and higher education, and public safety..." 3. Farm Bureau does not support spending more than the state receives in revenue. There was discussion of state revenues not meeting the estimates made earlier in the year and the challenges in meeting state responsi- bilities in the area of Medicaid, education and backfill- ing to compensate for reductions in commercial prop- erty tax passed by the legislature in 2013. 4. Farm Bureau supports voluntary, science based, conservation measures and incentives to minimize run- off from farmland.
