Let’s work together for clean water and a healthy environment
As an Iowan and a voter, clean water and a healthy environment are issues I care about deeply. As a member of the legislature, you have many opportunities right now to help Iowans pass a healthy and beautiful state on to our kids and grandkids.
I hope you’ll support sustainable funding of conservation and a healthy environment, for example by providing sales tax revenue to finance the Natural Resource and Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund 63% of Iowa voters created in 2010. It’s also time to fully fund the Resource Enhancement and Protection Program at $20 million and support other lake and river restoration projects that enhance Iowans’ enjoyment of the outdoors.
Supporting a healthy environment also means doing what is necessary to responsibly enforce current laws and providing state agencies the resources they need to fulfill their missions. Iowa’s Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and Department of Natural Resources both require adequate staff and support to complete their important work.
Programs that support a healthy environment make Iowa a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I hope you’ll join with other lawmakers to make a healthy environment your priority this year.
