Let's Pass the Invest in Iowa Act to Allocate $171 Million for Iowa’s Land, Water and Wildlife

b8ea3dce-7184-476e-97c1-126afe110c39

A decade after 63 percent of Iowan’s voted to support the creation of Iowa’s Water & Land Legacy amendment, we now stand on the precipice of an estimated $171 million in sustainable, constitutionally protected funding for the state’s long-awaited Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund.

That’s why Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever is asking you, our valued member, to voice your support of the Invest in Iowa Act proposed by Governor Kim Reynolds earlier this month. If passed, this legislation would direct $171 million to address the current challenges and embrace the future opportunities presented by Iowa’s land, water and wildlife. NOW is the time to deliver our conservation message to Iowa’s legislators.

Dear Legislator,

Please support the Invest in Iowa Act proposed by Governor Kim Reynolds during the 2020 legislative session. This legislation would send an estimated $171 million in sustainable, constitutionally protected funding into the Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund each year. Here’s why it should be considered a priority:

•    Land, water and wildlife resources are severely underfunded in the state of Iowa. Not only would this be a landscape level improvement to public AND private lands resources, but it would also fulfill a promise Iowan’s made to future generations more than a decade ago.
•    If the Trust Fund had been funded 10 years ago, we would be more than $1 billion dollars ahead of where we are now in funding cleaner water, healthier soil and more places for Iowans to enjoy the outdoors. 
•    We’ve waited long enough for the legislature to figure out how to respect the will of the people; please vote to support the Invest in Iowa Act.

Thank you for your support of the Invest in Iowa Act and the overarching funding support of Iowa’s land, water, wildlife, and rural communities!
