24-Hour Dorman: Reining in Culver? Too late

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

O. Kay Henderson at Radio Iowa brings news of Democratic state
lawmakers rebuffing Gov. Chet Culver's push for a bill to make it
easier for him to spend money from the state's reserves in the event
of a natural disaster. He wants to give the Executive Council, which
he chairs, the power to spend up to a third of the economic emergency
account. Dems are balking: "Senator Bob Dvorsky, a Democrat from
Coralville, says the bill's dead for the year." ... Where were these
separation of power concerns while leadership stood by and watched
Culver make $40 million in transfers without any legislative
authorization?
