Legislative Action - the Time Is Now..
05 Apr 2013 — 10:41 AM
The Iowa REAP Alliance supports fully funding the REAP Program at $20 million in next years budget. This budget is currently under consideration in the Iowa House and Senate and we need you to start contacting legislators.
In addition to supporting REAP - we are also asking for support for Iowa's Water & Land Legacy through an incrase in the state sales tax to fund the Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund.
You can find sample materials, talking points, and other information from Iowa's Water & Land Legacy that relates to the Trust Fund and REAP on the Iowa's Water & Land Legacy website. The key legislators to contact are listed below:
- Robert E. Dvorsky (D, District 37), Chair
- Jeff Danielson (D, District 30), Vice Chair
- Jack Whitver (R, District 19), Ranking Member
- Dennis Black (D, District 15)
For a listing of REAP Projects proposed and those that went unfunded between 2008-2012 you can find a great spreadsheet here with all the details.
