Don't shortchange Iowans. Fully fund the courts!

This petition had 159 supporters

The Iowa Legislature must approve the Judiciary’s $164 million funding budget request! Without question, failure to pass Chief Justice Cady’s request will result in more layoffs of courthouse personnel and more courthouses that will be open only part time.

Iowa has traditionally been viewed as providing one of the fairest and most efficient judicial systems in the country. This reputation has been a beacon to businesses looking to come to Iowa. A part-time court system will be a substantial burden to hundreds of thousands of Iowans and an embarrassment to all, and it will be a significant impediment to our ability to attract out-of-state businesses.

We urge that you not let this happen on your watch. Thanks for your consideration of our request.
