24-Hour Dorman: Culver comes a callin'

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Gov. Chet Culver stopped by The Gazette for an editorial board chat
this afternoon. Here's the Chet Notes version, like Cliffs Notes, only
with less detail. SPECIAL SESSION -- Culver insisted, impatiently at
times, that he's heroically using his executive authority to shift $40
million from the state budget into housing and business assistance,
making a special session unnecessary. He says his top priority is
getting money into people's hands fast, and he can do that without
waiting for lawmakers to arrive and vote. Three branches of government
can be so cumbersome, really. "What people need is assistance," Culver
said. "They know, as of Friday, when we announced this, that hope is
on the way."
