Statement of Attorney General Tom Miller
Monday, December 1, 2003
(In response to District Court Judge Don C. Nickerson's decision in Rants et al v. Vilsack item veto case.)
Comment of Attorney General Tom Miller:
I'm delighted with the decision.
We argued throughout that
two key Iowa Supreme Court decisions allow the Governor to exercise the
item veto power in just this kind of setting and situation. Judge Nickerson
has applied those decisions in the context of this case and found the
Governor's actions to be constitutional.
