Krusty Konservative: The Iowa Flood Center: Pure Iowa pork

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

The problem I have with the Iowa Flood Center is that it creates another duplicate government entity, just like the Rebuild Iowa Office did. We already have The Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division. The Emergency Management website clearly states their objective is to help coordinate activities before, during and after emergencies through partnerships with local, state, federal and private agencies. ... So why again did we need to create an entire new state agency called the Rebuild Iowa Office? All it does is skim money off the top that should be going to flood victims. In regards to the Iowa Flood Center, we already have the Corps of Engineers, the national weather service, DNR, and the above mentioned Iowa Emergency Management Division. And we should also remember that there was plenty of warning before the flood.
