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:

Senate Members
House Members


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.

For fact sheets, documentation and other great materials about the REAP Program you can download them here.  The Iowa DNR also operates a great website with LOADS of excellent information.
