Proposal to sell UIMA Pollock halted


According to the Daily Iowan, the “Pollock Bill” is dead. The so-called “Pollock Bill” (see previous post) was introduced by Rep. Scott Raecker on February 9th to the Iowa House Appropriations Committee in an attempt to balance the state’s budget through the forced sale of the University of Iowa Museum of Art’s prized painting (Jackson Pollock’s Mural). The Iowa House was scheduled to vote on the bill Monday afternoon (February 21) but Raecker withdrew his bill for this legislative year because it was too controversial to win enough support to pass.
