On Monday ol last week the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that the Governor had misused his item veto when he vetoed conditions, restrictions and limitations which the legislature had placed in several appropriation bills in 1973. I was one of the 27 legislators who filed the law suit challenging the Governor's use of the item veto. We did this at our own expense because of our belief that the legislature has a right to place reasonable limits on die spendin;.; of ta: AAAA, conditions and restrictions alone as items, for that -.voulcl be affirmative legislation, whereas the Governor's veto power is strictly a negative power, not a creative power. " The governor still has the right to item veto parts of an appropriation bill without vetoing the entire bill. However, if he vetoes condiiio.u, restrictions and limitations on how a particular item is to be spent, he must also veto the money item istself. I think that this im- 1 •» — * -«.-•>. --»_*..

By the Governor's use of item veto, certain agencies Iiad received appropriations of tax money without any of the legislative restrictions on how the money was to he used. The Iowa Supreme Courl in its decision stated "tiic item veto power does not contemplate striking out vent a graat deal of conflict between the Governor and the legislature over the use of item veto power. At 10:00 p.m. last Thursday, the House voted to unseat Republican Rep. Lyle Stephens who was elected by 24 votes last November.

Five Democrats joined 39 Republicans in voting against this action, which in my opinion, is the greatest injustice which has occurred in the time that I have served in the legislature. Because 43 residents.of health care facilities were mailed absentee ballots, their votes and the votes of 92 other persons who voted by absentee ballot were thrown out. The majority of the House made a "political decision" to seat a member of their own party. The reason given for doing so was that the Plymouth County Auditor failed to have a Notary Public from each political party deliver the ballots to residents of health care facilities rather than mailing die ballots. There was no showing of any fraud or undue influence. In several other counties the Auditors mailed the ballots as was done in Plymouth County. The Auditor in Plymouth County did not comply with one paragraph of a new 100-page election law which made dozens of major changes and went into effect last year. His actions did not prevent anyone from voting and there was no allegation that any ineligible people "voted by absentee ballot. Everyone agreed that Lylc Stephens was not guilty of any wrong doing. Yet 53 Democrat members of the House voted to unseat him because the Plymouth County Auditor had failed to strictly comply with a procedure for delivering absentee ballots. THE TITONKA TOPIC May 22, 1975 — Page 7 — A district Court judge in Polk County, the Iowa Secretary of State, and the Iowa Attorney General had all advised prior to last November's election that it was not essential to have all ballots going to health care facilities hand delivered by two notaries. They all said that the other procedure of mailing ballots was also permissable. The voters of Plymouth County and Lyle Stephens were innocent victims of a very great injustice. We enjoyed having the Juniors from the Swea City High School visit the Capitol last Thursday. We hope that every school in our district will be able to visit us before the session is over.
