People Before Politics

During the 2015 legislative session, the CCI Action team will work hard to ensure people come before politics in Iowa.


Our Universities, Our Education – Fully Funding Iowa’s Universities to Build a People and Planet First Iowa

Our Legislative Priorities: General Regents support of $673 million (a return to 2008 inflation-adjusted funding per student); approval of a Regents funding model that doesn’t require universities to compete against each other; and passage of the IOWA Act.

Our Money, Our Priorities – A State Budget to Build a People and Planet First Iowa

Our Legislative Priorities: Combined corporate reporting; Transparency in Corporate Tax Reporting Act; end tax breaks and exemptions for factory farm polluters; enact a “fair share fee” on corporations with more than 250 employees that pay below $15/hour, with the revenue collected going to county budgets for low-income assistance programs; investment in infrastructure and green/renewable jobs programs.

Our Government, Our Voice – Electoral Policy to Build a People and Planet First Iowa

Our Legislative Priorities: Voter-Owned Iowa Clean Elections (VOICE), a system for public financing; campaign contribution limits; universal voter registration; Constitutional Amendment overturning corporate personhood/Citizen’s United; restoring voting rights to ex-offenders.
