School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in Iowa

Iowa like other states requires a ballot measure if a school district exceeds the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) limit and to issue new bonding. Iowa has a school district budget growth limit which is set by the Iowa Legislature and approved by the Iowa Governor when the Iowa State Budget is deliberated. The current growth rate for public schools statewide is at four percent.

Census Prison Policy

A new policy for the 2010 census states that prisoners will have to be counted as residents from the city they are from, not in the cities where their prison is located. This is a new thing and rural Iowa depended a great deal on the prisoner numbers to keep their numbers higher for representation, which is predominantly republican in the rural areas and democratic in the cities. Rural towns are also worried about spending, if their population goes down after the census count then they will not receive as much money for development projects as they would have if the prisoners had been counted among their populations. Local groups do not think there would be enough time currently to stop the redistricting that will take place.[1]
