SPRINGFIELD – April 18, 2013. Lt. Governor Sheila Simon issued the following statement after the Senate Revenue Committee’s unanimous passage of Senate Bill 337, which will increase transparency in government spending. Lt. Governor Simon recently announced plans for the income tax receipt, in order to illustrate where taxpayer money goes and how it fits into the state’s multi-billion dollar budget.

“When you pay your credit card bill, you receive a statement detailing how your money was spent over the course of the month. Taxpayers should be able to see how their money is spent on state programs and services, such as education, pensions and prisons,” Simon said. “I would like to thank Sen. Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) for her leadership and the Senate’s Revenue Committee for passing this legislation, and I am committed to giving taxpayers the tools they need to learn more about government spending.”

Simon’s office is working with the Department of Revenue and the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget (GOMB) to design an income tax receipt, which will be introduced before the start of the next tax filing season in January and made available annually. The taxpayer receipt will be produced for the roughly 500,000 residents who file online for free, and those who file by other means will be able to access a webpage. This transparency initiative comes at no cost to the taxpayer.

DES MOINES, IA (04/18/2013)(readMedia)-- Davenport's North High School campus security professional, Ruben Moore, Jr., received the Paul Mann Memorial Human Relations Award presented by the Iowa State Education Association (ISEA). Moore was honored Thursday, April 11, at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines before a group of nearly 400 educators.

Moore is president of QC United, a non-profit organization created by community members and educators. Their mission is "to provide equal educational experiences and opportunities to all Iowa and Illinois Quad City Youth and their families, with special attention being given to the under-served."

QC promotes "Dreams Come True Trips" which provides students with three- to five-day educational trips to different sites around the country including Orlando, FL; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; and St. Louis, MO. This summer the group will head to New York City. The group is also implementing a new anti-bullying campaign called "Unity Year-Around" which stresses that bullying should not be tolerated by anyone in the community at any time. The "World on a Plate Symposium" is a new addition to the Unity Fest International event organized by QC. This activity brings high school students and diverse business leaders together to help students develop skills that prepare them to compete in a global market.

In addition, "Swing into Education"-a golf tournament Moore organized-raised over $8,000 in area scholarships.

"The Paul Mann Memorial Human Relations Award is about giving back to those in need and helping people succeed. Ruben certainly embodies this award with his hard work and efforts on the job and in his community," said Tammy Wawro, president of the ISEA. "Ruben's compassion for helping others knows no bounds. The ISEA is proud to present Ruben with the Paul Mann Award."

The Paul Mann Memorial Human Relations Award honors an individual or group for exemplary contributions toward the advancement of human and civil rights. It is named in memory of Paul Mann, a veteran Des Moines teacher and human rights activist who passed away suddenly in September of 2006.
