HOUSE DEMOCRATS STATEMENT ON STATE BUDGET ESTIMATES

Monday, December 11, 2017 For More Information: Rep. Chris Hall, 712-490-2088

From Rep. Chris Hall, Ranking Member of House Appropriations Committee

“The state budget has become an embarrassment to all Iowans, regardless of their political beliefs.

Paychecks and family income are stagnant. Iowa now ranks dead last in the country for economic growth[1], and the next legislative session will be spent paying off $144 million of debt.

Republican lawmakers and Governor Reynolds have failed to make life better for working families in education, healthcare, and stewardship of their tax dollars.”
