Welcome to the Department of Justice, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller

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.
