Bleeding Heartland: I wonder where Rants and Vander Plaats stand on this stimulus spending

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Nearly every day I see reports on this or that program in Iowa
receiving additional funding thank to the federal economic stimulus
bill, passed in February over loud Republican objections. This news
caught my eye on Monday. Iowa will receive about $7.5 million out of
$100 million appropriated to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development's Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program: "Polk County
will receive $3 million to eliminate lead in 206 housing units;
Marshalltown will get nearly $2.6 million to remove lead from 150
housing units; and Sioux City will be awarded nearly $2 million to
create 75 lead-safe housing units." Two potential Republican
candidates for governor next year happen to be from Sioux City:
businessman Bob Vander Plaats and State Representative Chris Rants.
