Weekend Update – May 4, 2018



Greetings IRR supporters and welcome to your weekend update!

Weekend update:

  • We’ve gotten some good news this week! Currently, both the House and Senate budget bills have earmarked $500,000 for DNR Water Trails (low-head dam safety mitigation and water trails projects).  We are finally in the home stretch of this legislative session and simple gratitude can go a long way.  Please contact your legislators and members of the RIIF committee.  Thank them for restoring the line item (last year this fund was zeroed out) and encourage them to vote for the appropriation.
  • There have been so many helpful voices in revitalizing this line item.  We still have a long way to go, but coming back from zero is no small feat.  If we pull this off, you will know that YOUR voice made a difference and will help fund restoration and recreational opportunities on rivers in Iowa.
  • The Speaker of the House has stated that she plans on session ending THIS WEEKEND!
