We Need To Overturn Branstad Education Veto

iowa capitolchange.org/

During the 2015 legislative session, Iowa lawmakers agreed to give Iowa schools $56 million in urgently needed funding. Iowa school leaders say this will help prevent larger class sizes, fewer teachers, and higher property taxes.

On July 2nd, Governor Terry Branstad vetoed this school funding compromise.

A special session of the Iowa Legislature is the only way to overturn this veto and help our local schools. For a special session to occur, two-thirds of Iowa lawmakers (67 in the House/34 in the Senate) must formally request one.

Sign this petition to encourage your state representative and state senator to join the call for a special session.
