Iowa Defense Alliance: Rebuild Iowa Panel advocates for reduced legislative oversight

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

In this morning's Des Moines Register there is an article about
Culver's supposedly non-partisan panel on Iowa's flood recovery. The
basic premise of the article is that they believe that Governor Culver
should have direct access to the rainy day fund with no legislative
oversight. I can understand that the panel wants to shorten the
response time between the time that a disaster happens and when relief
funds get to the affected. The Rebuild Iowa panel needs to take a
lesson in our nation's history. Their advocacy of the removal of a
series of checks and balances is ludicrous. These checks and balances
were put in place when our state was founded as a way to prevent an
abuse of power by an individual branch of government.
