RESOLUTION

 

                WHEREAS, the Iowa Legislature has passed Senate File 453 and presented it to Governor Vilsack, so that unless the Governor vetoes the bill it will become law; and

 

                WHEREAS, the $70 million in funding cuts proposed by this misnamed “Reinventing Government” bill would have a disastrous effect on the services provided by local governments across Iowa; and

 

                WHEREAS, Senate File 453 breaks promises that the state made to local governments, and would result in cuts to locally provided services such as parks, libraries, law enforcement and fire protection; and

 

                WHEREAS, the Gronstal Amendment and the Miller/Brunkhorst amendment were workable, realistic amendments to Senate File 453 that would have balanced the budget but used state resources to spare some of the cuts to local governments:

 

                THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD SUPERVISORS OF WEBSTER COUNTY that the board urges Governor Vilsack to veto Senate File 453.
