Democrat Games Push Schools Past Deadline

(DES MOINES) – Today Rep. Chuck Soderberg (R-Le Mars), co-chair of the Legislative Conference Committee on education funding, sharply criticized Senate Democrats for playing politics with education funding.

“The first bill off the floor of the House was setting school funding.  Republicans put forth a serious and significant proposal for funding, a $100 million investment which is more than half of all new money coming into the state,” said Soderberg.  “Since that point, Senate Democrats have done nothing but deliberately waste time and push off the funding decision passed the deadline schools face to certify their budgets.  Iowa’s school children deserve more than politics from the Senate Democrats.”

House Republicans Respond to Democrats Budget Targets

(DES MOINES) – House Appropriations Chairman Chuck Soderberg (R-Le Mars) released the following statement in response to Senate Democrats’ budget targets:

“The targets released today by the Senate Democrats spend more than the hardworking taxpayers of Iowa are paying, and we’re committed to balancing ongoing spending with ongoing revenue.  The state has $7.175 billion in ongoing revenue and we will not spend more than that.”
