Statement from Sen. Joe Bolkcom,
Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Committee

“The fiscal mismanagement and misplaced budget priorities of Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans are still bad news for everyday Iowans.

“Last year, the Governor took a victory lap because she didn’t need the Legislature to have a special session to fix her budget mess.

“The Governor is cheering today because there’s still money in the state’s bank account. That would be great news if she and the Republican-controlled Legislature hadn’t slashed funding for job training and higher education, reduced protections for seniors and other vulnerable Iowans, and made health care less accessible for thousand of Iowans.”
