Iowa Political Alert: Culver looks to go FDR in Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert
Gov. Chet Culver is touting an intriguing massive public works program in Iowa that he says the state can issue bonds to finance. He thinks a combination of state money and federal stimulus funding could help Iowa develop a major infrastructure renewal -- that would in turn lead to more private investment in Iowa. We need to hear more specifics but the money would go heavily toward transportation and bread-and-butter needs. Here in rural Iowa we will be watching to see that this means more than just DSM and Cedar Rapids improvements.
