Important Update from The Board of Directors
As I promised I would update you as the bills move through the process at the Capitol.
The SSB 1276 was voted out of committee on Tuesday of this week. As of this morning the bill has a NEW number -
Senate File 506
. This bill will now move to the Senate Floor for debate.
Right now we need your help to write all members of the Senate.
This is a critical week and Senators need to understand this bill and how it will protect Iowa Landowners.
The House Government Oversight Committee has not met yet. We anticipate that meeting to happen next week and are hopeful that HSB 249 will be voted out of committee. We are expecting the bill will have the same language as SF 506.
We will keep you updated on that activity and will send another email asking you to contact representatives with this same information.
Both bills require RICL to acquire 75 percent of the easements voluntarily to be granted eminent domain along with other protects for landowners.
All if the information you need to help contact Senators is in this newsletter.
I cannot over emphasize how very very critical your help is and that we have limited time (1-2 weeks) to make a difference.
Thank you very much!!!
Board of Director President
On Behalf of The Preservation of Rural Iowa Alliance
