                             OPENING REMARKS BY THE

                             PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE

         President Boswell addressed the Senate with the following remarks:

         A moment of silence, please, in remembrance of former Senator Dale
    L. Tieden.

         Thank you Mr. Chief Justice, Majority Leader, Senator Horn,
    Minority Leader, Senator Rife, fellow Senators and honored guests.

         I wish to recognize the most special person in my life, my wife
    Dody.

         I want to welcome you as we begin the 76th General Assembly of
    Iowa.  I especially want to welcome all the new members of our Senate
    family here today; newly elected Senators and their families, staff and
    pages.  I appreciate the effort made by each member of the Senate and
    the work of our staff towards our business here.  I look forward to
    working with all of you.

         Each session is unique and challenging.  The first session of the
    76th General Assembly will take on a personality of its own.  We will
    face many issues and look for common ground to address them.

         This task, representing our fellow Iowans, is an awesome
    responsibility.  We should take it seriously and approach each issue
    thoughtfully.  Iowans have sent us a very clear message. They want their
    government guided by one principal -- empower Iowans to be successful.
         Thats a pretty simple concept, if you think about it.  Allow us to
    succeed.  Give us the tools to be winners.  I believe it is a very
    positive approach to governing.  I have tried and will attempt to
    continue to follow it.  I encourage each of you to use it as your
    guiding principal when facing tough issues.

         The people of Iowa expect us to work together to develop public
    policy that improves their quality of life and encourages them to
    succeed.  Democrats and Republicans, the Senate and the House, The
    Legislature and the Governor -- Iowans expect us to work together.

         We have made progress in this area of cooperation; spending limits
    on the state budget, welfare reform, job creation.  In each of these
    areas, and more, we have worked together and found solutions that are in
    the interests of our state, not one political party or one politician.

    There is still much more to do.  While our state budget is on the mend
    and unemployment is relatively low, pay for our workers is not
    increasing.  Our challenge is to develop opportunities to create wealth
    in Iowa -- products developed in Iowa, manufactured in Iowa, and sold in
    Iowa and around the globe.  It is an opportunity right in front of us to
    push Iowa into an era of economic prosperity.

         With prosperity will come another solution that Iowans crave --
    reduce their tax burden.  It is a goal we all share.  The state must
    meet its obligations to its citizens, and Iowans must feel their
    economic outlook is brighter.  If those two things are within sight,
    then the tax burden on Iowans can be reduced.

         A fundamental obligation of government is to provide safety.  We
    must continue to develop solutions that prevent crime and punish
    criminals.  The people of Iowa demand it, and they deserve safe streets
    and neighborhoods.

         In every instance, whether it be creating wealth, reducing taxes,
    or preventing crime, the guiding principal remains the same -- empower
    Iowans to succeed.

         If we work together, with this goal always in the back of our
    minds, we will be successful, and more importantly, Iowans will be
    successful in the years to come.

         I look forward to the challenges ahead and working with you to
    create opportunities for Iowans.  I wish you the very best this session,
    and want you to know my door is always open.

         Thank you.



                         REMARKS BY THE MAJORITY LEADER

         Senator Horn addressed the Senate as follows:

         Mr. President, fellow Senators, ladies & gentlemen:
         Welcome to the 76th General Assembly.

         My remarks will be brief.

         First, I want to welcome our new Senators and staff.  It has been
    said that this  Senate is a little like a large family--sometimes at
    odds on issues, but a place where experienced hands help new ones along,
    and where we always treat each other with respect.  I think youll find a
    lot of truth to that, and you will not only feel good about your policy
    accomplishments, but will enjoy working with the people here.

         My door is always open to each of you if I can help in any way.

         What do I see ahead for us this session?

         This year, we have 110 days to accomplish all we can in such key
    areas as:

         crafting a balanced and priority driven budget for the next fiscal
    year

         fighting crime

         providing continued economic growth opportunities

         examining our tax laws

         reforming government operations such as welfare and health care
    regulations

         supporting education excellence

         and other important issues.

         While we will not always agree on the details,  as far as I can
    tell, these priorities are shared by most of the members of the
    Legislature and the Executive branch leadership. With that shared set of
    priorities, and the healthy mix of experience and new faces in the
    Senate, I am optimistic we will continue to make progress this year in
    all these areas.

         Mr. President, Im ready to get started.



                         REMARKS BY THE MINORITY LEADER

         Senator Rife addressed the Senate as follows:

         Mr. President, Fellow Senators, Staff, Family and Friends.

         The Iowa Legislature is back to tackle the issues that face the
    state in 1995.  As the Minority Party in the Iowa Senate, we are here
    and ready to resolve these issues in the best interest of our
    constituents.  I look forward to a cooperative, productive working
    relationship between our caucuses and between the House and Senate.

         We have many issues staring at us.  The M & E tax, income tax and
    property tax relief, ICN and our states budget.  The Senate Republicans
    have been an integral player in helping to retire the states debt.
    Because of this, we are now able to operate our budget with a surplus.
    With a surplus now on our books, we are looking at possible income tax
    cuts.  This is good news for all Iowans.
         Education funding will be one of the first major issues we address
    this session.  We must ensure that we provide a level of funding for our
    K-12 school districts which gives them the resources necessary to
    prepare our children to lead us into the 21st century.  We must work
    together to meet the allowable growth deadline of February 10th so
    schools will have sufficient time to complete their budgets and
    collective bargaining.

         Economic development will be advantageous to all of us.  With the
    elimination of the machinery and equipment tax, we will be opening our
    states doors to expand manufacturing businesses -- bringing with it new
    and improved jobs.  It is my hope that this will be one of our
    accomplishments during the 76th General Assembly.

         Once again the telecommunications issue will be before us. This, in
    and of itself, is a big enough project to keep many people occupied for
    an entire session.  It will be my personal goal to make sure that this
    operation does not grow out of control for the taxpayers who will be
    financing the project.

         I also expect the General Assembly to move ahead on individual
    health care reform.  Although Congress was unable to reach consensus, I
    hope that we can agree on some basic concepts so that all Iowans can
    have access to high quality, affordable health care.

         Hammering out a new mental health funding formula will be quite a
    task.  We must be sensitive to the groups who need services, and to the
    financial burden on taxpayers and counties.

         The Legislature also needs to make real progress towards reducing
    crime in Iowa.  Juvenile justice, the death penalty and sentencing are
    key issues that deserve our careful thought and consideration.

         In the last two General Assemblys, the Iowa Legislature has reduced
    its rate of increased spending, balanced the states books and, as a
    result, built up a positive ending balance in its general fund.  At the
    same time the Legislature forced cities to freeze their budget for two
    years, forced many municipalities to borrow in the bond markets and
    reduced the ending balanced in their general funds.  At this point, the
    state has a more than adequate revenue stream to attend to its needs.
    It would be my hope that just because we have balanced books, we will
    not start spending our surplus on new and expanded programs.

         Agriculture is a major source of income for Iowa.  Livestock
    confinement facilities have been in the news almost daily.  Hog industry
    representatives are concerned that emotion and hysteria will drive the
    legislature to increase regulations on these facilities, which would in
    turn drive the industry out of the state.  Rural homeowners and
    residents of sprawling urban centers are concerned that the smell and
    the potential pollution of water sources will ruin their quality of
    life.  The decision will be how best to regulate these facilities with
    all concerns taken into account.  Senate Republicans will be there to
    help make these decisions.
         The 1995 session of the 76th General Assembly will be interesting
    for all -- minority and majority parties.  I look forward to working
    with everyone so that in the end, all of Iowa will be a better place to
    live and grow.

         Thank you.



                               TEMPORARY SECRETARY

         Senator Horn moved that John F. Dwyer be appointed as temporary
    Secretary of the Senate.

         The motion prevailed by a voice vote and Mr. Dwyer appeared before
    the rostrum and was duly sworn to the oath of office.



                           ADOPTION OF TEMPORARY RULES

                           AND TEMPORARY COMPENSATION

         Senator Horn moved that the rules of the Senate and provisions for
    compensation of employees adopted by the 75th General Assembly be
    adopted as the temporary rules and temporary compensation provisions for
    the 1995 session of the 76th General Assembly.

         The motion prevailed by a voice vote.



                             ANNOUNCEMENT OF VACANCY

         President Boswell announced that he had received notification from
    the office of Governor Branstad of the following vacancy in the Senate
