Iowa Independent: Culver sets modest goals in Condition of the State Address

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Iowa Gov. Chet Culver outlined his agenda for 2008 during his
Condition of the State address Tuesday morning, proposing on a laundry
list of nuts-and-bolts initiatives focusing on health care, the
environment and education. Proclaiming that "the condition of our
state is strong," Culver told a joint session of the legislature that
it is time to build on initiatives passed last year. "I believe our
goals this session are simple: protect our priorities, balance the
budget, and address some unmet needs." Culver also promised that he'd
sign a bill allowing local smoking bans if given the opportunity and
called on the legislature to raise teacher pay, restructure and expand
the state bottle bill and expand early childhood education
opportunities.
