The Honorable Terry E. Branstad
Governor of the State of Iowa
The State Capitol
Des Moines, Iowa 50319

Dear Governor Branstad:

In accordance with the Code of Iowa, I hereby transmit to you and to the General Assembly the Annual Report of the Iowa Civil Rights Commission for fiscal year 1984.

At the ICRC, we have the goal of preventing and eliminating discrimination. Our efforts toward that goal include acting upon complaints alleging possible incidents of discrimination, as well as education of the public as to Iowa's laws.

An examination of this report will show that FY 1984 brought an increase in the number of complaints resolved, a decrease in the average case processing time and a reduction in our case inventory. These figures reflect the countless hours of dedicated service of the agency's staff and Commissioners, each of whom has made a unique contribution to the civil rights efforts of our state.

Respectfully submitted,

Artis Van Roekel Reis
Executive Director
