IMMEDIATE MESSAGES

Rants of Woodbury asked and received unanimous consent that

REMARKS BY THE MAJORITY LEADER

Rants of Woodbury addressed the House as follows:

Good morning, and welcome back. I hope all of you had a good interim since last we
were together like this. I know that I did. I trust that all of you arrived in town ready
to roll up your sleeves and go to work because that is exactly what we will do this week.

Machiavelli said "One change leaves the way open for the introduction of others."
That is certainly true for this legislature. There has been a change in leadership
within our caucus - which will in turn cause more change. There has been a change in
the make up of this body - and that too will bring change. Iím eager to see what the
three newest members to our legislative family bring to our discussions.

And then there are the changes we seek to cause this year. And with each, comes a
challenge.

Traditionally the first week of the legislative session is regarded as mostly
ceremonial. That is going to change this year. This year we are going to hit the ground
running. We have a number of issues that need to be addressed right away - first and
foremost keeping our budget balanced. Representative Millage - that is your challenge.
This afternoon the appropriation committee and its subcommittees will begin work on
the deappropriation bill - a piece of legislation Iíd like to have on Governor Vilsackís
desk by the time we adjourn for the week.

Representative Grundberg - the challenge for you and the education committee will
be to form a compact between parents and their schools that ensures that children
leave elementary school reading at grade level. That will require not just teachers, but
also parents and students to accept real responsibility for the studentís progress or the
lack of it. Iowa may be the most literate state in the union, but that isnít good enough.
Every child must be able to read.

Representative Van Fossen - the challenge for you and the Ways and Means
committee is to ease the tax burden on Iowans. Iowaís seniors should be able to remain
in Iowa upon their retirement. For those whom the cold winters donít drive south, we
must ensure that our tax code doesnít push them out. The taxation of their social
security benefits must end. Young Iowa families need a break as well. Please give
them freedom from taxes for at least one day when they are doing their back to school
shopping.

Representative Teig - it is the challenge for you and the Economic Development
committee to return to work on two issues on which you have already done much work.
Workforce development and venture capital. If Iowa is going to realize the goal of

having more Iowans, younger Iowans and better paid Iowans - then your committee
must again craft legislation to help Iowans acquire the skills they need to compete in
todayís changing workplace and find the capital to create new businesses.

Representative Gipp - you and your colleague signed up for the Transportation,
Infrastructure and Capitals Committee. It ought to be re-designated the Quality of
Life" committee. Iowans are counting on you to continue our commitment of protecting
our environment, repairing our parks, and helping local communities provide
recreational opportunities for Iowans. Your challenge is not to do just this. Your
challenge is to do this without neglecting the physical infrastructure of this state.
Bricks and mortar eventually crumble - and we need to make sure that our public
buildings are safe and in good repair for the protection of all Iowans.

A small challenge for all of us in this new year is to treat each other with respect
and the courtesy we each deserve. Voltaire said We cannot always oblige, but we can
always speak obligingly.

We have enough difference between all of us - partisan difference, geographic
differences, and of course the well publicized "rural/urban" difference. We do not need
to exacerbate these differences by mistreating each other on the floor.

McKinnney Hubbard, a humorist who lived a hundred years ago once stated that
"an optimist is a guy who has never had much experience." Well, perhaps that is why I
am so optimistic about this session. I believe that we can overcome each of these
challenges to make Iowa an even better state in which to live, work and raise a family.

Because I am new to this job I will do things a little differently than the last person
to sit at this desk. You can expect a few changes. I would advise my colleagues that Iím
going to try and move this session along at a quick pace - so please be ready to debate
your bill when it appears on the blue debate calendar. I will make an effort to give
both caucuses advanced notice of when legislation will be debated - but please, donít
ask me about the dove bill this morning. Our caucus will spend more time in caucus
than we have in the past. Representative Schrader, Iíll try and give you advance notice
of those so that we can use our time wisely by having both parties caucus. One thing
that will not change is the open door policy that has always existed in this office. The
door is open to everyone, regardless of party, so come on back.

There is a new staff in the Majority Leaderís office. Iíd like to introduce them to you
- most of you already know Jeff Mitchell but many of you have not yet met Jackie
Seymour. Last week we had the ceremonial "passing of the clipboard" from Susan
Severino to Jackie, so if you have a question about the calendar, Jackie is the one to
see. If your bill isnít ready to debate yet, Jackie will be the one coming to see you.

All three of us are new to these positions, and that ensures mistakes will be made -
most likely on my part. So I ask for your understanding in advance.

Two hundred years ago, Pastor Lyman Beecher offered the following prayer, "Oh
Lord, grant that we may not despise our rulers; and grant, oh Lord, that they may not
act so we canít help it." Ladies and Gentlemen, during the next one hundred days letís
not give them any reason to do so.


REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO NOTIFY THE GOVERNOR

Teig of Hamilton, chair of the committee to notify the Governor
that the House was duly organized and ready to receive any
communication he might desire to transmit, reported that the
committee had performed its duty.

The report was accepted and the committee discharged.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO NOTIFY THE SENATE

Boal of Polk, chair of the committee to notify the Senate that the
House was duly organized and ready to receive any communication
the Senate might desire to transmit, reported that the committee had
performed its duty.

The report was accepted and the committee discharged.

REMARKS BY THE MINORITY LEADER

Schrader of Marion addressed the House as follows:

Addressing this assembly at the start of a session is always a bit humbling. All the
members have been sent here as leaders to speak and vote for the people of their
districts. The experience, abilities and ideas collectively held by all of you are nearly
endless. They provide us an opportunity to do great things.

Let us start the 2000 legislative session by listening to the ideas of all members, by
relying on the collective experiences of all members, and by using the abilities of all
members of this chamber to do the best job for the people of Iowa.

All of us, particularly the leaders, Republicans and Democrats alike, have fought in
the political battlefields for a long time. Most of us have a few scars to show for it. But
the past does not have to dictate the present. We make the decision whether the
session is merely the opening chapter of the upcoming campaign, or whether it is truly
a time to solve problems and address needs as Iowa enters a new century.

It is a fact that with a Democratic Governor and a Republican-controlled
Legislature any accomplishments or successes this session will be bipartisan. That
bipartisanship should start in this chamber.

I have a few suggestions. First, the committee and subcommittee process should
work the way it was intended. Mr. Speaker, I know that you will agree with me that
during our first years of service it was the exception, not the rule, to "walk" a bill to
collect signatures from subcommittee members. Subcommittees actually met to read
and discuss and perfect a bill before it went to committee. But today the "up front"

work that is the subcommittee and committee process is too often ignored. The
embarrassing result has been legislation that is flawed and misunderstood. Letís
refocus on the committee process and improve the quality of our work.

Our appropriations process has always been difficult. But all subcommittee
members have become increasingly isolated from the decisionmaking process. There
was a time when subcommittees met and actually debated the items that go into their
budget bills. Of course, the majority party had its priorities and its budget target, but
there was actual decisionmaking by the members on the budget items that werenít
priorities. The final budget was not predetermined by leadership or the subcommittee
chairs.

The quality of our work product will be vastly improved if the subcommittee
members - who attend the meetings and understand the budget - are allowed to decide
the components of their appropriations bills.

Finally, I believe the members can do a better job during floor debate. This room
was never meant to be a quiet or sedate place. The issues we discuss and the
differences that exist often combine to create great passion, as they should. Our House
Rule 10 has been invoked too often in recent years, many times just to relieve a
memberís discomfort over not knowing the answers to legitimate questions. Any and all
information relating to an issue before us is vital. Attempts to disallow discussion of
past debates and previous actions are inconsistent with the purpose that we are here
for.

At times a member may be uncomfortable, as a colleague points out flaws in a bill
or inconsistencies in a position. But that discomfort is not a reason to limit debate. We
must never tolerate a personal attack in debate, but we must never deny the passion in
a debate that makes our system the envy of the world.

Mr. Speaker, politics as usual may be what is expected from this session. Our
constituents are more cynical than ever before about their government. Last week in
the special election in Cedar Rapids only eleven percent of the registered voters
bothered to participate, not to mention the sizable number of people who were not
eligible to vote because they have never registered.

Let us resist "politics as usual" and demonstrate to Iowans our ability to lead. Mr.
Speaker, Democrats are ready to begin.

COMMITTEE FROM THE SENATE

Senator Johnson from Dallas appeared and notified the House that
the Senate was duly organized and ready to receive any communi-
cation that the House might desire to transmit.

REMARKS BY THE SPEAKER

Speaker Siegrist addressed the House as follows:


Good morning and welcome back!! As we once again gather in this magnificent
chamber, we renew friendships and begin to enjoy time with our second family. While
it is always difficult to leave our real homes, it is always a pleasure to come back to
work in the Iowa House.

Our legislative family has changed with the addition of three new members. On
behalf of the entire House, I want to welcome Representatives Griemann, Shey, and
Taylor. I'm sure that your experience in this legislative process will be one of the most
interesting and rewarding of your life.

After all the intense build-up to the new millennium the past year, it is almost easy
to forget that this session of the 78th General Assembly is the first of a new century. As
such, this session will be special and by working together, we can make it a special
session for Iowans.

Tomorrow, Governor Vilsack will deliver his State of the State address. Like him, I
have had the opportunity during the interim to travel all over Iowa talking with people
about our future. From Council Bluffs to LeMars to Mason City to Dubuque and Mt.
Pleasant and Chariton, and many points in between, it has been interesting and
enjoyable to visit with Iowans about how our state is doing.

>From my viewpoint, the state of the State is good, and with our hard work and
cooperation this session, it will get better. Much talk has already focused on the
budget of our state. It is important to note that the fiscal condition of our state
government is very solid. As we gather here today, we have around $600 million in the
bank in our reserve funds. That figure is one of the highest in the history of our state.
Our economy is still projected to have solid, moderate growth of 3.7% despite the
dramatic downturn in farm commodity prices. The work that this House has done the
last eight to ten years has allowed our economic base to diversify to the point that
despite these historic low prices this past year, our economy continues to grow.
However, even though our overall fiscal situation is solid, the budget we will be
working on this session is difficult and extremely tight. I got to thinking about this
yearís budget difficulty and the surplus last night while listening to some music. In his
song, L.U.V., John Mellencamp sings "Iím thinking about the government, wondering
where the money went. Into outer space, I guess." There has been discussion in the
media recently about where the $900 million surplus has gone. The fact of the matter
is that we have reduced the surplus from $900 million to $600 million by design via tax
reductions for all Iowans. The tight budget we currently face is due to revenue
shortfalls because of the farm economy, and overspending by the Governor and
Legislature. And we must share some of that blame. So, beginning today, we must
work together to get this budget back in balance without touching our significant cash
reserve.

As I visited with people around the state, I found the large majority of them felt
that Iowa is on the right track. As Representative Rants mentioned, we have
challenges facing us. Challenges that will allow us to continue to make Iowa a better
place to live. We have the opportunity this session to pass legislation which will affect
all Iowans. We will accomplish this by making sure that our students are reading at
grade level, and when they are not, making sure they get extra help to catch up. We
will touch Iowans by passing and signing into law a workforce development bill that
will train and retrain our workers for the jobs of the future. We must help our senior
citizens by removing the tax on social security. And we must make Iowa a better place

to live by enhancing our quality of life and ensuring that our water is clean and that
recreation opportunities and community attractions continue to improve. These are
the goals of the Republican Caucus, and indeed I believe they are shared by both
parties as well as the Governor.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said "Lifeís most persistent and urgent question is: What
are you doing for others?" By acting on these goals, I know we will feel comfortable at
the end of this session answering Dr. Kingís question.

Another thing that Iowa citizens told me around the state is that they are proud of
all of us for getting our fiscal house in order. They are proud that we no longer use
budget gimmicks to balance our books. They donít want us to make promises we donít
keep, and they donít want us shifting money around to places where it doesnít belong.
Iowans have long memories, and they remember our past indiscretions. They
remember starting the Instructional Support Levy for schools and then never fully
funding it. They remember the creation of R.E.A.P. at $30 million a year and then
never fully funding it. They remember in the early Ď90ís when we cut back on the
Homestead Tax Credit because of our bad budgeting practices. And they certainly
remember the years that we robbed the road use tax fund by paying for the operation
of the Highway Patrol out of road construction funds. They appreciate the progress we
have made and during this tight budget year they want us to continue to use sound
budgeting practices.

Iowans also are very happy with our infrastructure fund. They love the recreation
grants, lake dredging, biking and hiking trails, state capitol restoration, and the
Community Attraction and Tourism fund that we established using infrastructure
money. We should not be moving programs that have nothing to do with infrastructure
from the general fund into the infrastructure fund. We have made great progress, and
we have to make sure that one tight budget year doesnít make us think of the easy, but
bad, practices of the past.

So we have a challenging session ahead of us. To accomplish what our state needs,
we have to strive to work together. There are some people around here who say it is an
election year and that partisanship will be very high. Thatís not what the people of
Iowa want. They want us to work to improve our great state. They understand that
we will have fights and disagreements. However, there will be plenty of time for
partisan politics beginning next May. For the next 100 days, we must work to pass the
legislation necessary to improve our state.

Finally, I want to thank each and every one of you for serving in the Iowa House. It
is an unfortunate fact of life that the people of Iowa do not know what a sacrifice it is
for all of us to serve in the Iowa House. If you havenít been here, you canít know how
difficult it is to leave family, friends, and jobs back home to serve the public. They
donít realize that we totally uproot our lives to provide a public service. There are days
around here that my stomach hurts because Iím not at home with my wife and two
young children. On those days, knowing that I work with all of you, the best people in
the state, makes it worthwhile. Knowing that together we are making a difference
makes up for the sacrifices we all make.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Speaker, and thank you for being part
of this great institution.
