A solution without a problem

Monday, November 28, 2016

Iowa State Representative Bobby Kaufmann, a Republican from Wilton, has proposed legislation to cut the budgets of any state university that uses taxpayer dollars to fund election-related sit-ins and grief counseling.

Certainly public universities should not use taxpayer dollars for such activities, but they donít. There is no evidence that in Iowa any taxpayer dollars are being spent on election related sit-ins or grief counseling.

So are taxpayer funds going for the introduction of frivolous legislation?
