  President Kramer, Speaker Corbett, Lieutenant Governor Corning, Chief
  McGiverin, Justices and Judges, Senators and Representatives, State
  Distinguished Guests and Friends.

  One score and five years ago, I sat in this chamber as a freshman
  legislator, awed
  by the ornate surroundings, humbled by the responsibility given me by my
  constituents, and yet eager to do the people's work.

  Today, on this, my 15th report to you and the people of Iowa on the
  condition of our
  state, I stand, as your Governor, just as awed, just as humbled, just as
  eager to get on
  with the people's work.

  My passion for our state has grown with every day I have served it.  My love
  of our
  people is deepened with every act of kindness and goodness I have

  I am truly blessed to serve as your Governor.  I thank God every day for
  opportunity and pray for the wisdom to make the right decisions.  And I'm
  not done

  I am more pumped up about the future of our state than ever before.  Now,
  worry all you gubernatorial candidates - I'm not announcing for re-election
  here.  But I
  don't plan to go gently into that good night either.

  I will spend every waking moment of my final year as Governor pushing and
  pulling, speaking out and working behind the scenes, all to make this great
  state the
  best it can be.

  We've come a long way.  We've weathered a farm crisis as searing as the
  Depression.  We've seen hardships as well as bounty; economic uncertainty as
  well as
  prosperity; natural disaster as well as nature's benevolence.  The heart and
  soul of our
  state has been tried and tested, reinvigorated and renewed, seasoned and

  Iowa's story is best described by something once said by a prominent
  businessman:  "Good timber does not grow with ease. The stronger the wind
  stronger the trees."

  Today, we stand together stronger and taller than ever before.  I am proud
  report, the condition of our state is as good as we've ever had it.
  Consider just a few

  ? In 1997, unemployment fell to the lowest level in history and the number
  working Iowans rose to the highest level in history.

  ? (np)
  ? In 1997, the number of jobs created by new businesses rose almost 19

  ? In 1997, we had one-third fewer Iowans on welfare than four years ago.

  ? In 1997, Iowa land values increased for the eleventh consecutive year.

  ? In 1997, we created one of the best student-to-computer ratios in the
  and within a year, every Iowa school district will be hooked up to the

  ? In 1997, we ended the year with a state budget surplus of over $800
  million -
  the state's best fiscal position ever.

  This record of achievement didn't happen by magic.  It took a lot of hard
  work by
  Iowans all over this fertile prairie all pitching in to build a better Iowa.

  And the people in this chamber, yes, you the members of the 77th General
  Assembly did your part too.

  A year ago, I stood in this very place and challenged you to take bold steps
  to make
  our state more competitive.  You answered that call.  And today, every Iowa
  taxpayer is
  paying 10 percent less in state income taxes.  The elimination of the
  inheritance tax for
  family members will help Iowa families pass on their piece of the Iowa Dream
  to loved

  On behalf of all Iowans, I would like to thank you for taking those actions.

  But our job's not complete.

  As we stand on the cusp of a new century, we face unique challenges brought
  on by
  our own successes.

  ? We need more and better trained workers for a growing economy.

  ? We need even stronger schools to educate our children for the rigors of a

  ? We need new and more housing to provide shelter for a growing work force.

  ? We need to give all parts of Iowa a share of our growth by processing
  agricultural products here in Iowa instead of shipping out our valuable

  ? We need to protect Iowans from the few who break our laws and threaten our

  ? We need to continue sanding off the edges of uncompetitiveness that burden
  our people and the state's long-term growth.

  The sun has indeed been shining on our state - but there are storm clouds on
  Dealing with diversity, international competition, the information
  explosion, and
  new stresses on the family all stare squarely at us.

  How do we deal with them?

  Our old ways of doing things won't always work in this modern world.  We can
  Iowa stubborn, lock our heels and build walls around our state.  Or we can
  change, manage it and master our future.

  That is our choice.

  I am of the firm belief that those storm clouds on our horizon will bring
  replenishing rains that will cause our economy to grow and our state to
  flourish -
   if   we prepare the ground.

  We are on the verge of historic change in our state.  Since the invention of
  the plow
  centuries ago, our population has been weighted down by the need for fewer
  hands on
  the farm.  Those Malthusians, who predict the future only by looking at the
  past, say
  the same is in store for us in the future.

  They're wrong.

  Our economy is crying for more hands to man the tiller of our economic
  growth.  We
  are in the same position as we were when our state was first settled.  Back
  then we
  needed Dutch pioneers to till the rich, black soil of Sioux County; and the
  families to market goods in Burlington; and the German missionaries to open
  the doors
  of learning at Wartburg College in Waverly.

  Today, we need the Latinos, Asians, Bosnians and Kurds - all immigrants of
  21st century, eager to find new opportunities for a new life here in the
  Heartland of
  America.  Each new people - each new culture - has helped to enrich our Iowa
  character and values.  And today is no exception.

  Our sons and daughters will find good jobs here at home.  And families from
  states will migrate here for a good life and good jobs.

  They will be the engine of our growth for the next century as Iowa enters
  this new
  era of growth and opportunity -  if   we prepare the ground.

  We should start, as always, with our kids.

  At no time has it been more evident just how much our state cares about
  than a couple of months ago, with the birth of the McCaughey septuplets.
  outpouring of love and support that family is receiving from their church,
  and the entire state is testimony to the caring nature of Iowa's people.

  We must now make sure that the McCaughey's children - and all children in
  - get the best education in the world.  Our schools are good, but not good

  Our schools are structured on a model suited for a time that is past - not
  prepared to meet the challenges of the future.  No other public institution
  has been
  more resistant to change; no public institution needs it more.
  Our education system still looks much like one designed for pioneers of the
  West and not the pioneers of the Information Age.  We cannot continue to
  operate that

  If you do nothing else this year, do not leave here without reforming our
  The time to act is now.

  In my Condition of the State Message last year, I announced the formation of
  citizen's commission to help develop a vision and road map for education in
  the 21st

  Many members of that commission, including Chairman Marvin Pomerantz, are
  with us today and I would like to acknowledge them and thank them for their
  assistance in assembling a plan to remake Iowa's public education system.

  The vision they presented us with is the right one for Iowa.  That's because
  it is
  based on the best research and just good common sense.  How do we improve

  ? With better teachers;

  ? By teaching children earlier and longer; and

  ? By locally setting standards with accountability for results.

  These are the common sense building blocks of a new educational system that
  prepare our state for the 21st century.

  Better teachers.

  I'll bet each of you can recall at least one teacher who made a big
  difference in your
  life.  I can.  I'll never forget Lura Sewick, my 8th grade history teacher,
  and I'll forever
  be indebted to her.  We need more Lura Sewicks to influence more children's
  lives for
  the better.

  To do that:
  ? We must reform the teacher education program to make it truly a
  My program includes rigorous reforms of teacher preparation and financial
  for those who attain the highest level of certification through the National
  Board for
  Professional Teaching Standards.

  ? We must raise beginning teacher salaries so high achievers will be
  attracted to
  the profession.  It's been eleven years since we raised the beginning
  salaries, and

  ? We must pay good teachers and administrators more with a merit pay
  program and make it easier to get rid of bad teachers.

  Teach kids earlier and longer.

  By age three, three-fourths of a child's brain is developed.  Properly
  nurtured, that
  development will lead to a productive adult.  Without nurturing, that  lack
  development can result in a juvenile delinquent and an unemployable adult.
  State government can't guarantee every child a good family.  But we can help
  Iowa's families and schools give our children the building blocks for
  success in life.  I
  asked Lieutenant Governor Corning to head a workgroup that developed a
  strategy for
  helping Iowa's children.

  By assisting at-risk children at an early age, research has shown that we
  will help
  them do better in school and stay away from crime and drugs.  Early
  intervention has
  even been shown to increase incomes for the parents as well as improve the
  opportunities for children.

  What I am recommending is not a new government program - it is a new way of
  thinking and a better way to deliver the multitude of programs designed to
  make sure
  children get off to a good start in life.

  It is called, "Building Blocks for Success," and it is an initiative
  designed to
  empower local communities with decision-making authority by block-granting
  and enabling them to set their own priorities for where money and services
  are needed
  most.  It will create a new era of local empowerment, allowing us to tap the
  and innovation of our people to help every Iowa child have a solid start in

  This year, we must also take action to expand health care coverage for
  children.  The budget I am presenting today will allow us to provide health
  coverage for over 55,000 more Iowa children.

  We must also:
  ? Ensure access to quality preschools and give every child a chance to
  attend all-
  day, everyday kindergarten.

  ? The State should also provide assistance to those schools that make the
  decision to lengthen their school year.

  Schools should be open longer and serve as community learning centers, open
  the entire community for recreational and educational activities.  Today's
  kids get in
  trouble when they have nothing else to do.  Let's keep them actively
  throughout the day and year.

  Iowa has a long and proud tradition of being a local control state.  Our
  schools are
  the best because parents and communities take an active role in making them
  way.  But our public schools must be accountable to the people they serve.

  Every Iowa school must have strong local standards - developed by school
  teachers, administrators and parents.  The standards must be rigorous and
  set out
  clear expectations for learning.

  Iowans deserve to know how their students and schools are doing in
  comparison to
  the competition.  Each school in Iowa should be required to report uniformly
  on their
  students' progress in reading, writing, math, science, and other basic

  Better teachers.  Teaching kids earlier and longer.  Local accountability
  for results.
  These are the three common sense principles upon which we must build our new
  education system.
  Don't be fooled by those who say we need not change.  If we fail to act now,
  our kids
  will forever suffer.

  Many Iowa families make the financial sacrifice each year to send their
  child to the
  nonpublic school of their choice.  I am recommending the tuition and
  textbook credit be
  increased from $100 to $250 per student and that it be expanded to include
  the fees
  paid by the parents of public school students as well.

  The quality of Iowa's schools reaches well beyond the day a student achieves
  a high
  school diploma.

  The University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern
  provide a quality, affordable education while at the same time conducting
  world class
  scientific research.  There is no finer example of the groundbreaking
  research and
  valuable services Iowans get than the University of Iowa Hospitals and
  Clinics, which
  is celebrating its centennial this year.  My budget includes funding to
  undergraduate education and libraries, to strengthen our Colleges of
  Education, and
  enhance initiatives under way in biosciences, value-added agriculture, the
  arts and
  humanities and international education.

  So much of Iowa's unique character is embodied in our independent colleges
  universities.  Through the Tuition Grant, we help thousands of Iowans have
  access to
  education they otherwise might not be able to afford.  This year, we should
  increase the
  Iowa Tuition Grant to provide a higher level of assistance.

  Our fifteen area community colleges are essential in preparing Iowa's work
  for the jobs of the future.  We must increase support of our community
  colleges and
  expand the Vocational Technical Grants to help part-time as well as
  full-time students.

  The roots of this state are firmly grounded in the land that God has blessed
  us with
  - hundreds of thousands of acres of the richest soil anywhere.

  The subsistence farming of the 19th century has evolved into a modern-day
  agriculture that uses satellites in space and seeds scientifically
  engineered to
  withstand the elements.

  With the growth of international markets, those of us here in the
  breadbasket of
  America will be facing tremendous opportunities.  No one - no one - will be
  better able
  to feed the world than we Iowans.

  We are the nation's leading producer of corn, soybeans and pork.  We also
  near the top in beef, turkey, egg, dairy, and even honey production.  In the
  Iowans were the ones to grow the crops, but we'd export them to be
  processed.  Others
  reaped the economic rewards of what we Iowans sowed.

  No more.

  In community after community, we've seen what adding value to the
  we produce can do - it creates quality jobs, increases the prices farmers
  get for their
  crops and brings new economic vitality to our communities.
  Last summer and fall, I was in over 60 counties to learn more about
  agriculture.  What I discovered from Iowans was really quite profound: our
  future is on
  the table.

  Iowans told me that a significant barrier to investment in new agricultural
  enterprises was the availability of investment capital.  We must encourage
  networking among producers.  The state should become a reliable partner for
  entrepreneurs who need help getting off to a good start in agriculture.

  We need to expand the innovative Beginning Farmer Loan Program that works
  with bankers to help new, young farmers get started.  The average age of
  from this program is 32, the average age of an Iowa farmer is well over 50.
  It is vital to
  get more young people into farming.

  I am also recommending the creation of the Agrifutures Fund - a $25 million
  revolving loan guarantee program - as well as expanded use of the Link
  Program to support the development of value-added agriculture activities.

  One of the fastest growing areas in agriculture is organic farming.  This
  62,000 acres are in organic production - a significant number, but not
  nearly enough to
  meet the growing demands.  We need to establish a state Organic Agriculture
  Certification Program to provide a valuable marketing tool that will add
  credibility and
  stability for the organic farmer to become competitive in the global

  A study by Iowa State University identified livestock production as the
  single most
  efficient way to add value to grain.  Jobs related to the livestock industry
  employ more
  people than live in Council Bluffs, Dubuque and Iowa City combined.

  Three years ago, we adopted one of the nation's strongest laws regulating
  livestock industry.  Our approach is based on strict, stable,
  statewide standards.

  This year, we must expand the State's ability to deal with chronic violators
  enabling the Department of Natural Resources to deny new permits and revoke
  existing ones of those who repeatedly break our environmental laws.

  Good stewardship of the land has always been central to the Iowa character.
  cannot allow the loud voices of a small minority to drown out the need for
  good, solid
  Iowa common sense policies.  Balancing strong statewide standards with an
  ability to stop those who do not live by the rules will provide the valuable
  environmental protection Iowans expect.

  Succeeding in the global economy of the 21st century demands that our work
  improve Iowa's competitiveness never cease.

  The actions we took last year on income and inheritance taxes were
  steps forward, but we can do more - and we should.

  Retirees add so much to the vibrancy of our communities and we can no longer
  afford to lose so many of them.  It is all too common to hear of long-time
  Iowa residents
  moving to Illinois or South Dakota upon retirement.  This year, we should
  double the
  pension tax exemption.  I am also recommending we direct all revenues above
  expectations toward eliminating the tax on pensions altogether.

  Iowa taxpayers deserve constitutional protection from high taxes and
  government spending.  We should adopt the Taxpayers Rights Amendment and
  them that protection.

  The State of Iowa should encourage, not discourage, its people to have
  access to the
  information superhighway.  That's why I am recommending we eliminate the
  sales tax
  on Internet services.

  Our elimination of the inheritance tax for family members will allow
  hundreds of
  Iowa families to pass on their farm or business to the next generation.  But
  I think we
  should ask ourselves if it is really fair to make families wait until a
  death to transfer
  their assets without the burden of excessive taxation.  The current capital
  gains tax
  exclusion should be increased to 100 percent and expanded to include the
  assets of
  family farms and businesses sold or transferred to lineal descendents.

  We can also make our state safer.  The opening of the Clarinda, Newton and
  Dodge prisons gives us greatly needed prison space to keep dangerous
  criminals where
  they should be - behind bars.

  The budget I am recommending will continue to increase our prison capacity
  adding 500 beds at our existing prisons in Mitchellville, Mount Pleasant and

  The shocking rise in crimes by sexual predators is of grave concern to me
  and all
  Iowans.  Let us have the courage this year to take steps to prevent these
  crimes by
  authorizing the use of temporary hormonal treatment of sex offenders,
  something that
  has been proven effective in those places bold enough to take this action.
  We must also
  improve the monitoring of sexual offenders as well as make it easier for
  Iowans to
  know if one is living in their midst.

  A few years ago, most Iowans had no idea what methamphetamines were.  All
  quickly that has changed because too many lives have been lost to this
  horrible drug.
  In just four years, we have seen a twelve-fold increase in the number of
  Iowans seeking
  treatment for addiction to methamphetamine.

  With tougher penalties, a strong anti-drug education campaign and a
  enforcement effort, we are determined to win the war against this deadly

  Drug use in the workplace is a great concern of Iowa workers, who are put at
  everyday because we have one of the weakest drug testing laws in the
  country.  Iowans
  seeking treatment for drug abuse tell us that workplace drug testing would
  helped them avoid drugs.

  As I travel the state, I sense there is a growing consensus that drugs are
  affecting the quality of Iowa's workforce.  We cannot afford to wait any
  longer.  This
  year, we must strengthen our workplace drug testing law.
  I am also asking you to pass a strong Crime Victims' Bill of Rights.  And,
  we need
  the possibility of the death penalty for multiple killings and the
  cold-blooded murder of
  rape and kidnap victims.

  We should also take action to ban the heinous procedure of partial birth

  Whether it be the victims of crime or our next-door neighbors, Iowans have
  been willing to lend a helping hand.  I remember President Reagan saying
  that "the
  success story of America is neighbor helping neighbor."

  Community service and volunteerism are important chapters in Iowa's success
  story.   Over the past couple of years, I have spent considerable time
  volunteering with
  Iowans.  From painting a school in Waterloo to serving meals to seniors in
  Bedford, I've
  seen volunteers truly making a difference in the lives of others.

  As we build Iowa's foundation for the future, we can never forget the
  importance of
  volunteerism.  I am proclaiming 1998 as the Year of the Volunteer in Iowa.

  In June of this year, we will be having a state summit on volunteerism - in
  spirit of the Presidents' Summit for America's Future held in Philadelphia.
  The Iowa
  Summit will bring together teams from all 99 counties to set forth a bold
  agenda of
  helping others.  Seated in the gallery today are many of the members of the
  committee - from throughout the state - who are helping to put the Iowa
  together and I would like to recognize them at this time.

  Today, I invite you to join me in recommitting ourselves and our state to
  caring for
  those in need.

  Making schools better, adding value to agricultural commodities, making our
  more competitive, protecting the safety of our citizens.  This is our common
  agenda for 1998.

  Our state is in good shape.  It is tempting to sit back, pat our stomach,
  and rock
  away these good times.  But that would only guarantee that they will never

  My love for this state is founded not on what Iowa has been, but what it can

  Iowa can be a state that is growing good, quality jobs everywhere.  Iowa can
  be a
  state with the best schools and smartest kids in the world.  Iowa can be a
  place to raise
  and nurture a family for people from every race, religion and country.

  Yes, I am convinced that those challenges which face us - which some see as
  clouds on our horizon - are truly directed by God to bring us the refreshing
  rains of
  spring - if we prepare the ground.

  The program I have outlined for you does just that.

  When the gavel has fallen and our work here is done - when the last echoes
  speeches have faded - let us be able to say that we truly seized the day.
  We ushered in
  a new century of growth and opportunity for Iowa.

  That will be our lasting legacy.  Thank you and God bless the state of Iowa.
