Coralville Courier: Governor Culver wastes taxpayer money with photo op travel
Excerpted from this post at Coralville Courier
Gov. Chet Culver will be in Iowa City on Thursday to sign job creation legislation into law. I-Jobs is an $830 million, three-year plan to create jobs, strengthen the state's economy and rebuild state infrastructure. The initiative will be directed toward transportation projects, improvements to the Iowa Veterans Home and community colleges, flood recovery projects not covered by federal funding, water quality improvements and alternative energy infrastructure. "I-JOBS will help us work our way out of this recession by putting Iowans back to work and revitalizing our state's aging infrastructure," Mr. Culver stated in a press release.
