Welcome to The Exchange on Siouxland Public Media. I’m Mary Hartnett.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed into law a 282- million dollar water quality bill passed in the Iowa Legislature last week.. The measure is a boon for farmers, in that it would mean about $150 million dollars in new funding for cover crops, bioreactors and saturated buffers as they seek to curb the high levels of nitrates and phosphorous entering Iowa's waterways.
