It wasn't until those greedy bastards figured they could redirect the funding to meet there own personal agendas it got all screwed up, just like they do to almost every program. REAP is another example and the same reason we are looking at an increase now because of the huge budget cuts in Des Moines going on, DNR is one the first places to get hacked.

How many years since REAP was created in 1989 has it been fully funded as intended? Last I knew 0

Remember folks these large budget cuts have been going on for quite a few years now our elected leaders steal from our Natural Resources yet we continue to say the DNR is doing a horrible job. Considering Iowa is at the top of the food chain when it comes to land cost and power of the farm bureau influence it further complicates everything.

ITS ALL POLITICS and we the voter let it happen.
All solid points Tom,
If foks on here are old enough to remember way back our current Gov try to take money away from the DNR way back when we were the #1 Pheasant state and put the money towards something else someone in the leg. got that stopped.
