of this provision, but I amconcerned that the requirement thatwould have applied retroactive- ly to tax returns filed onor after January 1, 2009might be questionablywritten,might arguably affect taxpayers’ due process rights and might, therefore, have opened the way to a lengthy court challenge. Because this is a retroactive tax reporting change, I cannot let such an alter- ation in longstanding tax policy affect taxpayers that have already legally filed tax returns. Therefore, I am unable to approve the retroactive language.

For the above reasons, I respectfully disapprove the designated items in accordance with Ar- ticle III, Section 16 of the Constitution of the State of Iowa. All other items in Senate File 478 are hereby approved this date.

Sincerely, CHESTER J. CULVER, Governor
