State capitol of Iowa

Statement by Senate Appropriations Chair Bob Dvorsky on latest revenue estimates –

“Iowa’s rising state revenues are another sign that our response to the national recession is working. Now is the time to make sure middle-class Iowa families and Main Street businesses benefit from a lasting economic recovery.”

“As Senate Democrats look forward to the next state budget, we invite Governor Branstad and Republican legislators to join in a bipartisan effort to balance the state budget without raising taxes while investing in expanding educational opportunity, creating jobs, and filling the skills gap for Iowa workers.”

    i THINK THE 101 MILLION DOLLAR remodeling of the Iowa Historical building will eat up any excess money and delay property tax reducions till Bumstead gets out of office.

    I believe the $400 million has to do with the state employee retirement fund. We can’t afford to pay them.

    I guess I am not understanding this state budget business. How can the State have a balanced budget when not 3 weeks ago the paper stated the State was 400 million in the hole. Is this one of those “creative” stories the “guvmint” is always throwing out there???
