The budget for the state's court system includes a five percent salary increase for Iowa judges. The governor has signed bills that divert 10 million dollars from Iowa's Area Education Agencies to set up a new division in the Iowa Department of Education to oversee the A-E-As. As many as 62 new state employees will be hired for the Division of Special Education. The budget for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources includes a quarter of a million dollars to address accessibility issues at state parks.
