Distinguished Guests and Friends.
Birthdays are a time to celebrate, give thanks, and reflect. And
so it is today as we gather in this, the 150th year of Iowa's
We should celebrate. We have a right to. The condition of our
state is not just good - it is great. Iowa is as strong as it's
ever been and poised to grow even stronger.
We should give thanks. Thanks to the pioneers who tamed the
wilderness and forged the communion we still today have with
this beautiful land. Thanks to the leaders like former Governor
and current Sesquicentennial Chair Bob Ray, Co-chair C.J. Niles,
members of the Sesquicentennial Commission and the many former
elected state officials and congressmen who have joined us for
this special occasion. I ask that this group stand and be
We should reflect. Reflect on this special place between two
great rivers that we call Iowa. It's a place where hard work,
common sense, family, and faith in God still count for
something. I believe, as sure as I am standing before you today
that this is a blessed place; that this state has not happened
by chance, but by the grace of God. We are so fortunate to be
It is entirely proper that our celebrations, our thanksgivings,
and our reflections turn to the past as we mark this important
milestone in our state's history.
Hugh Sidey, the Greenfield, Iowa native who is a contributing
editor of Time magazine, put it best when he wrote that our
state "has a subtle magic which was God-given at first, but has
been protected and enlarged by Iowa's generations and now yields
a culture that has remarkable virtues."
Ours is a state of good people, closely tied to the rhythms of
nature with a stability and resilience that was, and still is
uncommon. Where else can a young boy be taught by his father
that life is not a sprint, it's a marathon and take that lesson
 and teach it to his children? Only here in Iowa. It is here
that the character of a people, though weathered by 150 years of
flood and drought, depression and war, has emerged stronger and
tougher than ever.
Just look at a few of our accomplishments over the past year.
Our economy is thriving; our fiscal condition is sound; our
communities are growing; and our families are stronger.
</U>More Iowans are working than ever before and our unemployment
rate remains at half the national average.
</U>Exports and land values continue to rise. For the first half of
1995, we saw exports jump 29 percent and land values increased
by over 7 percent last year.
</U>Our state budget is in the best condition in a generation with
cash reserves full and a surplus of $435 million.
</U>Iowa school children continue to receive a truly first class
education with more students taking courses in foreign
languages, higher levels of math and science, and advanced
</U>We are one of the best places in the country to raise a family.
Kids Count ranks us second in the quality of life for children.
Our focus on jobs and quality education has paid off. Today,
Iowa is truly a vibrant, growing state, even though just a few
years ago the "experts" said we were destined for decline. Well,
they couldn't measure with their census tracts the character and
resilience of Iowans.
But as we celebrate and give thanks for our successes let us
remember that this is not a sprint, but a marathon. And the
finish line has yet to be crossed.
We must not now abandon that common sense and constancy of
purpose which has been the hallmark of our character. Today, we
stand at the threshold of a new century, poised for greatness
and it is those very same qualities that will help us build on
our success and make it last.
We must seize this day, and fashion a future string of endless
success stories: of families coming back home for good paying
jobs; of communities with new leaders and new  life; of a state
known for steady growth.
How do we do it?
First, we must remember the lesson of our ancestors - that
educating our citizens is government's most important task.
The progressive nature of Iowans was never demonstrated more
clearly than in 1839, when Iowa's territorial government set up
the first free public schools. They made sure that a schoolhouse
was within two miles of every Iowan.
Today, those one room township schoolhouses are gone. But in
their place, we have 384 local school districts, many non-public
schools, three world-renowned state universities, 35 independent
colleges and universities, and 15 area community colleges.
In the last decade, we have taken education in Iowa to new
heights, but now we must go even further. There is no state in
the nation which is better prepared to educate its children to
succeed in the Information Age than we are today in Iowa.
Just as we were ahead of the times in 1839, our investment in
the Iowa Communications Network vaults us ahead of other states
and countries in the education of our children.
In his new book, The Road Ahead, Bill Gates, the visionary
founder of Microsoft, discusses how important it is for us to
use technology and the information superhighway to advance
education. I'm sure even Bill Gates would be impressed if he
knew that his vision for the future is up and running in Iowa
today. Soon every school district will have access to two-way,
interactive classes provided by the Iowa Communications Network.
The ICN will make certain that distance or size does not
disadvantage any student, even in the smallest or most remote
school district of this state.
Look around you. Almost every work place - even this House - is
run by the computer. Yet too few of our students have access to
computer-aided instruction.
We need to change that. By the year 1999, every Iowa high school
student should have access to the information superhighway and
be taught by teachers who are trained to deliver the
technological know-how necessary to prepare them for the jobs of
the next millennium.
I am proposing we establish a four-year, $150 million School
Improvement and Technology Fund to provide our local schools
with the flexibility and resources they need to bring the
opportunities of the Information Age to every Iowa student.
Our schools must continue to be places where our children are
enabled to reach the limits of their talents; where they can
exceed their ambitions; and where they will be able to progress
beyond the dreams of their parents. This is the Iowa dream. We
all know there is more to improving Iowa's schools than
computers and technology alone. The teacher will always be
fundamental to our system of quality education. We must take
steps this year to redevelop the teaching profession so that
teachers are prepared to equip our children with the skills to
compete in the Twenty-first century.
Now, we must also strengthen our state's commitment to equitable
local school funding while we reduce reliance on property taxes.
That is why I am proposing that from now on all allowable growth
in school budgets be paid for by the state, and not the local
property taxpayer. This is an historic move that will greatly
strengthen all of our schools for the future.
Just two months after Iowa became a state, our first state
university was chartered. Iowa's state universities are among
the finest public universities in America, offering a quality,
affordable education, conducting trend-setting research, and
serving as a valuable tool for economic development. In
preparing for the future, we should make key strategic
investments in facilities so our Regents' institutions can grow
to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
I am recommending a three-year, $66 million program to fund
facilities for biological sciences, the performing arts,
engineering, and livestock research at our state universities.
Our independent colleges and universities attract students from
Iowa and all over the country - most of whom stay here to live
and work. To meet rising education costs, we should increase the
Iowa Tuition Grant, which helps keep some of our best and
brightest young people here in Iowa.
Our community colleges are our link to the workforce. The
training and education they provide to our workforce helps make
Iowa workers the most
 productive in the land. These colleges will play a key role as
we restructure our workforce development programs.
We must stay on the course for economic development. Our
continuous improvement strategy to attract good-paying jobs is
working. Last year, we made progress by eliminating the property
tax on machinery and equipment. We cannot afford to stop there.
This session, we must reform our regulatory system to keep Iowa
on a course for growth and opportunity for the next 150 years.
We should also take new steps to improve our overall
competitiveness, helping both families and small businesses grow.
Iowans work hard all their lives to leave a family farm,
business, or other assets to their children. But for too many
Iowans, that dream is eroded by a state inheritance tax. We
should eliminate the inheritance tax among family members to
protect family farms and businesses and to keep more of our
citizens here in their retirement years.
We can help small business by giving them the same benefits our
tax structure offers to larger corporations. And, all Iowans
would be helped by fully indexing the state income tax rates.
We also need to reform our property tax system. The current
system is hopelessly complicated and archaic. There are 8,000
different jurisdictions that can levy property taxes and there
are numerous credits, many of which aren't fully funded. Over
the last 13 years, we have spent $900 million in property tax
relief, yet few Iowans have seen their property taxes go down.
We need to make it fairer, simpler, and less of a burden. It is
time to start fundamentally changing it with a top-to-bottom
review as we prepare for comprehensive reform next year.
To help control both spending and taxes, we should adopt the
Taxpayers Rights Amendment to the Iowa Constitution. The growth
of government should be limited to the rate of inflation and
increases in population unless it is approved by a vote of the
As a state, we have learned some difficult lessons. In the past,
we became complacent and lost our competitive edge. We will not
let that happen again.
We also have a responsibility to see to it that all Iowa
communities have the opportunity to share in our economic
success. The New Jobs and Income Program, adopted just two years
ago, has generated $1.6 billion in capital investment and
created hundreds of quality jobs. We should make this tool
available to smaller projects in rural communities.
And let us never forget our economic backbone - agriculture. We
need to take full advantage of new opportunities which lie in
the area of value-added agriculture. The list of products made
from our agricultural commodities grows longer each year.
Ethanol processing now employs 12,000 Iowans and is responsible
for 11 percent of net farm income. The Asian market is hungry
for our food products, and we are preparing to intensify our
promotion of Iowa Quality Meats.
We must improve our farm cooperative laws and allow farmers to
have greater ownership and involvement in the value-added
processing industry. As we help our livestock producers meet new
challenges, we must also recognize the need to protect our rural
quality of life.
Education and economic development. That's what brought us
success and will make it last.
As we continue to grow and prosper, we must never neglect the
quality of life we have in this state. Our state is only as good
as its families and communities.
So many of the problems we face today, as a nation and as a
state, can be traced back to the decay of the family.
Unfortunately, government policies have inadvertently
perpetuated illegitimacy, torn families apart, and robbed
children of opportunity.
This year, we are launching a Campaign for the Family. It is
designed to strengthen and reconnect families by focusing on
stability, health, safety, and self-sufficiency. Iowa's success
in the next century and a half depends on the quality and
vitality of our homes, churches, neighborhoods, and communities.
Government can't rebuild a family. That is the responsibility of
individuals. We can encourage the exercise of individual
So at the risk of being dubbed old-fashioned, I believe that we
can, as a state, reinforce the two-parent family for the good of
children. Each year, more than a million children go through
divorce in this country. And while there are many single parents
who are doing a great job, we've seen that children who grow up
without the benefit of having both parents at home are five
times more likely to live in poverty and two and a half times
more likely to be dropouts, commit serious crimes, abuse drugs,
or get pregnant.
I believe we should reform our divorce laws to require mutual
consent or specific grounds for divorce. Our present no-fault
divorce laws have transformed marriage into an arrangement of
convenience rather than an act of commitment. Parents need to
understand that a divorce can severely hurt children and impact
the opportunities their kids have. Please join me in our effort
to find a better way.
As part of our Campaign for the Family, we want to reduce
out-of-wedlock births and reenage fathers, holding them to their
parental responsibilities and assuring them of their parental
I believe parents deserve the right to know when their child is
undergoing a significant medical procedure. We should require
parental notification before an abortion can be performed on a
Strong families provide the fertile soil from which strong
people and solid communities  grow. The key to addressing these
problems lies in reconnecting and reinforcing Iowa's families.
This is even more critical as power shifts away from the federal
government. The devolution of power from Washington to states,
local communities, and inevitably to families and individuals,
gives us both an opportunity and a challenge.
It is an opportunity to take charge of our own destiny, find
solutions that best fit our own problems, and empower
individuals and communities to fashion their own futures.
But it is also a challenge. We must be prepared to bear the
burden of authority and accept responsibility for our own
Iowans are better prepared than most to meet that challenge. The
spirit of neighbor helping neighbor is as Iowan as the tall corn
we grow.
State government, too, must be prepared to meet the challenge.
We must not become a bottleneck in the historic flow of power
from Washington to the family.
We must rise to our new responsibilities and reshape state
government. In Iowa, the transformation of our welfare system
serves as a model for empowering individuals and families. Our
Family Investment Program has helped thousands of families gain
self-sufficiency and has broken the culture of dependency.
From workforce development to Medicaid to our child welfare
system, new flexibility from the federal government will allow
us to design a state government that is results-oriented,
customer-focused, competitively-based, and most important,
relies on a partnership with communities, churches, and families.
One size does not fit all when it comes to helping families in
need; government must be changed to better meet the true needs
of those we are trying to help.
All Iowans want to live in safe communities, having streets,
schools, and homes that are free from the cancer of violent
crime. We have among the lowest crime rates in the nation, but
we are all troubled by the level of violence and drug-related
crime in our state. Every Iowan has the right to feel safe and
secure and that should be our guiding principle.
To protect Iowans, I believe we should reinstate the death
penalty for those who commit two class "A" felonies, one of
which is murder. Rape and kidnap victims, prison guards, and the
innocent people of Iowa deserve this protection. The clear
majority of Iowans support capital punishment. It is time for us
to answer the call of the people and restore the death penalty.
We must not waver in our war on crime. We should eliminate
parole for forcible felons and sexual predators. The most
dangerous criminals should not be given a second chance to rob
or rape again. In addition, juveniles involved in crime must be
held accountable for their actions. Public disclosure of
juvenile arrests and greater access to records will send a
strong message and help stop young people from progressing to a
life of adult crime.
In less than a year, we have seen the use of methamphetamines in
Iowa double. Already, we have launched an ambitious prevention
campaign, and I am recommending increased penalties for making
and dealing in "crank". This scourge cannot be allowed to infect
our communities and destroy the lives of more Iowans.
Until we show criminals that their actions do not pay, there is
no hope of stopping the few that disrupt the safe and peaceful
lives of Iowans. We have made good progress in the last couple
of years in addressing our need for more prison space. This
year, we should authorize construction of another 750 bed prison
and use prison labor to remodel and reopen cellhouse 17 at Fort
When I grew up in rural Iowa, we didn't need locks on our doors.
Let us work together to restore that sense of security once
again to the neighborhoods, schools, and homes of Iowa.
As a state, we are better prepared than ever to act on the
priorities I have outlined for you today. We made the tough
decisions that Washington is only now beginning to grapple with.
Our actions have paid off.
No state in the nation stands in the solid financial position we
are in today. Our cash reserves are full and we have a GAAP
balance of $435 million. This year, Financial World magazine
ranked Iowa as the sixth best managed state in the nation. Our
goal should be no less than to be the best managed state in the
This year, we must continue to live by the spending reforms that
took our state government from a $400 million deficit to a
surplus that is even greater. This
 budget that I am presenting to you protects our cash reserves
and keeps ongoing expenditures at 4 percent growth.
We know from our history that there are times to reap and times
to sow, that there are droughts and floods that follow
bin-busting harvests. We must be prudent in our spending today
so that we will be able to meet the needs of Iowans when times
are leaner.
We are also working to make state government more accountable
and responsive. The bipartisan Council on Human Investment,
chaired by Lt. Governor Joy Corning, is developing and
implementing a new state budget system that ties expenditures to
the results Iowans want. The system, called Budgeting for
Results, will be used by seven agencies beginning this year and
will be expanded to all state agencies by the year 2000.
This is also the time to pay attention to our infra-structure
needs. It is this generation's turn to invest in our public
facilities. Therefore, I am recommending that we establish a
permanent Infrastructure Fund that will provide a reliable and
steady stream of funding to build and rebuild our public
buildings and infrastructure.
This year, we Iowans have much to celebrate, much to give thanks
for, much to reflect upon. Iowa's subtle magic, that Hugh Sidey
described, has indeed been protected and enlarged. Today, we are
better prepared for our future than ever before.
But birthdays involve gift-giving. And it is that last feature
of our sesquicentennial that we must also remember throughout
this year.
As citizens, each of us should take the time this year to help
out a friend in need; assist a family in trouble; help clean up
a park; coach the local team; serve on a community board; and
say a prayer for our local troops overseas. These are gifts we
can give our state. They will make this an even better, more
civil place. Such giving is one of the remarkable virtues which
have been given to us by those who have gone before us.
As public servants, we should use this year to give to the state
our commitment to do what is best for Iowa. The course I have
laid out for you is ambitious and challenging. But it is a
steady course; a clear course for our future.
Our gift to this state in its 150th year should be to leave all
personal, partisan, or private interests at the door. For this
must be the place where the public interest rules.
And, we and those we serve will be better for it.
So let us celebrate, let us give thanks, let us reflect during
this year. Let us give the state the best that is in us.
With God's help and yours, we can make our state stand out like
a candle of light in the Heartland of America - the same beacon
of hope which guided those early pioneers 150 years ago.
And 150 years from this day, they will look back and thank us
for giving them the greatest days in the history of this Great
State of Iowa.
Thank you, God bless you, and Happy Birthday, Iowa.
