Our wish for each of you is good health, prosperity and happiness in the New Year! Our Christmas celebration was really outstanding. After spending Christmas Eve with our family here, we left the next day for .uhe Minneapolis area to spend a few hours with family there, and then in the evening boarded a jet for San Francisco where we were able to spend four wonderful, hectic •ays with the rest of the family.

It was a year of unprece- ented turmoil that left many eople bitter and demoralized .bout our problems and the government's ability to handle Jiem. But, the picture has not bee n entirely bleak. Congress passed several pieces of significant legislation, particularly In two areas of special concern—the economy and integrity in government. In order ito help remove the sressures of big money from slections, and make elected officials more responsive to the jutolic, Congress approved a presidential cajmpaign spending law that limits the size of campaign contributions and 8.

It's a more limited law ithan I would have preferred, but It is a good beginning. In the area of the economy, although much remains to be done in the next session, severa actions were tiake n this year that should help improve the situation. Significant among these is the Budget Reform Act thai will bring control of fereda expenditures under the um brella of a budget committee l n the House and Senate begin nlng next year. As a result Congress will have much tighter control over the size anc priorities of the budget. We also passed a new trade refoilm act which will help pump up the sagging econonr. by opening new markets fo- goods overseas; and an'Energy Research and Development Ac ministration was created tc direct and coordinate the searc for long-term energy alternatives. In addition, Congress passe the Commodity Futures Reform Act—a law which I was able t play a major role in shaping— providing much more effectiv government regulation of th gigantic futures trade, benefit ting farmers and consumer alike. Federal regulation of prlvat pension plans was reformed as was federal funding of local community development programs. Significant cuts were made in the military budget for the first time in many years, and education benefits for Vietnam veterans were increased. There is, of course, a great agenda of unfinished business before us as we begin another session. Rep. Branstad Named To Important Committees State Representative Terry !.

"The Democrats control bortto Houses of the Iowa Legislature and their state platform pledges to repeal Iowa's Right to Work Law.

The National Right to Work Newsletter has warned that advocates of compulsory unionism were taking aim at State Right to Work Laws in Iowa and Wyoming.
