Branstad, Reynolds Talk Economic Development, Tackle Other Issues At Town Hall Meetings

branstadDes Moines, Iowa — Iowa’s Governor Terry Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds are in northwest Iowa.

The executive pair made three stops in our area yesterday (4/2). We caught up with the Governor after he had been at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn School in Sanborn, the Sibley Public Library in Sibley, and the Forster Community Center in Rock Rapids. We asked him about the issues he has been hearing about in northwest Iowa.

We also asked him about his health care plan, and when we could expect to see it. Branstad has said the state is required to expand Medicaid to thousands more Iowans, and he doesn’t think the state should take federal money for this because the federal money may not always be there.

Branstad and Reynolds’ stops today (4/3) include the Terrace View Events Center in Sioux Center and the Cherokee Noon Rotary at Danny‚Äôs Sports Spot in Cherokee.
