      The natural resources are where I enjoy life the most. Also it is my preferred field of employment and the field I got my education in.

      Iowans have shown time and time again that conservation funding is a priority. Public support of REAP has been strong for many years, but REAP still hasn't met its original allocation goals - then more recently, we voted for sustainable funding. Fund the trust fund! Clean water and abundant places to recreate are valuable to all Iowans.
