Statement by Governor Vilsack

DES MOINES - Governor Tom Vilsack released the following statement today regarding the results of the legislature's special session:

"As Governor, I approach decisions with the long-term interest of our state in mind. I made a decision to veto this bill after tremendous thought and review. I also promised to work with legislators to find balance on the issues surrounding this legislation. I kept that promise by offering legislation that protects property rights but allows local leaders to improve their communities through job creation and new investments."

"While I think today's outcome is unfortunate, I understand legislators need to do what they feel is in the best interest of their district. Just as I must do what I feel is in the best interest of the state."
