FR:      Bill Northey, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture
TO:      Iowa Reporters and Editors
RE:      Gov. Reynolds Condition of the State Address
DA:     Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey today issued the following statement on Gov. Reynolds Condition of the State address, where she again expressed her support for quick approval of a long-term water quality funding by the Legislature.
“Governor Reynolds has been a strong supporter of the water quality efforts underway across the state and I appreciate her making long-term funding a priority in her Condition of the State address. The Legislature has provided increasing support for water quality over the past 5 years, including nearly $10.5 million this year, but this session is an opportunity to identify a long-term source of funding to allow us to continue to scale-up our water quality efforts.

“I also appreciate her focus on supporting our state’s rural areas, including expanding broadband access. With agriculture as an important driver, I agree there are tremendous opportunities to see significant growth and economic development generated in our small towns and rural communities.”
