Approved May 29,2001, with exceptions noted.

THOMAS J. VILSACK, Governor

Dear Mr. Secretary:

I hereby transmit House File 742, an Act relating to and making appropriations to state departments and agencies, including the department of corrections, the department of cul- tural affairs, the department of economic development, the department of general services, the Iowa state fair foundation, the legislative council, the department of natural resources, the department of public defense, the department of public safety, the state board of regents, the state department of transportation, the office of treasurer of state, and the department of agriculture and land stewardship, and to the Iowa resources enhancement and protection fund, making related statutory changes, providing for alternative and contingent appropria- tions, and providing effective dates.

I am pleased that the general assembly chose, for the most part, to follow the recommenda- tions of the infrastructure advisory committee and the recommendations included in the five year capital projects plan. There are, however, instances in House File 742 where those recommendations were not followed, funding levels were less than recommended, or projects were not funded in priority order.

For these reasons, House File 742 is, therefore, approved on this date with the following exceptions, which I hereby disapprove.

I am unable to approve Section 17 in its entirety. This item would appropriate $90,000 for a borrow pit recreation project in Grundy County. This was not recommended by the infra- structure advisory committee; given that there are other funding resources for recreational projects within this budget, these resources should be dedicated to higher ranking state projects.

I am unable to approve the designated portion of Section 25, subsection 3, paragraph c. This item appropriated $400,000 for the construction of a pedestrian bridge over Court Avenue on the Capitol complex. Given that projects with higher priority were not appropriated at the recommended level, these resources can be more appropriately used on these priorities in the next budget year.

18 Division III of this Act probably intended

CH.185 LAWS OF THE SEVENTY-NINTH G.A., 2001 SESSION 544

I am unable to approve Section 25, subsection 8. This item appropriates $250,000 for the site purchase and preparation for the construction of a new state patrol post in Mason City. While this project is included in the 5-year plan for capital projects, there are other higher priorities, including a utilities update to the Toledo juvenile facility, and unit renovations at the Anamosa reformatory.

I am unable to approve Section 42 in its entirety. This language, added in the last hours of the legislative session, would create a variety of notice and bidding requirements for local projects that receive Vision Iowa funding. These requirements, because they are effective immediately, would jeopardize projects that have already received financial commitments. It would be unwise to delay projects, which could add to their cost, by imposing these last minute requirements upon them.

The bulk of the funds and the responsibility for the success of these projects rest with local officials and taxpayers. I believe that they are in the best position to determine how projects will be bid and awarded.

For the above reasons, I hereby respectfully approve House File 742 with the exceptions noted above.

Sincerely, THOMAS J. VILSACK, Governor
