Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, May 18, 2015

Different week – same story. There’s still no deal at the legislature regarding funding for public schools. Republicans have proposed a $100 million increase and the Democrats have proposed a $200 million increase. This disagreement is holding up completion of the state budget.

In the meantime, we have put two new alerts up on our website. As usual, several issues that had been put aside earlier in the session have come back to be…

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, May 8, 2015

It was a fairly short but busy week at the capitol as work continued on the state budget along with a few policy items.

There are multiple reports that Democratic and Republican leaders have agreed on the level of increased funding for public schools, called “supplemental state aid.” With this agreement, public schools would receive a 1.25 percent increase as the House suggested, and also receive a one-time payment of $55 million. The one-time payment would not be added to the…

LAST WEEK AT THE CAPITOL

There’s been no visible progress on the standoff over funding for public schools in Iowa. The state spends nearly $3 billion on K-12 education from the general fund. Republicans have proposed about a $100 million increase and the Democrats have proposed  a $210 million increase. This stalemate has made it very difficult for legislators to consider additional assistance for private school parents.

Both chambers have passed the state Department of…

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, April 27, 2015

Budget bills are starting to move in the Iowa legislature. The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to consider the Department of Education budget bill later today (Monday). It includes status quo funding of about $650,000 to pay for textbook purchases by nonpublic schools. The bill also allows both public and nonpublic schools additional flexibility in how they spend state funds on preschool. This bill does not provide the state aid for public schools - that comes later in the…

KEEPING AN EYE ON BUDGET BILLS

It looks like the Democrats, who hold the majority in the Iowa Senate, will begin work on budget bills this week. Their proposal would allow for spending from the state’s general fund of about $7.3 billion, the same number as the governor’s budget. The Republican leaders in the House want the state budget to spend no more than about $7.2 billion.

Among the items we are monitoring in the state budget are programs that affect people with low-incomes…

"...the best way to influence children, teenagers and emerging adults is through their parents."

“(Our research shows) the best way to influence children, teenagers and emerging adults is through their parents; to educate them; to turn them into agents of evangelization,” said Smith. “If parents aren’t involved and on board, it’s just really hard to get through to children.”--Dr. Christian Smith, sociologist at Notre Dame University.
