To the Editor:
Many look at Washington, D.C. and rightly point out that hardly anything gets done for the good of our country. Looking at Iowa, I have seen reports that Gov. Branstad hasn't proposed an ambitious agenda for this year. Yet, every day, I read reports of new bills and proposals from his agenda being churned out in the House and Senate. Your average family, business owner or worker would agree that getting things done is admirable and good.
We are still seeing budget surpluses for years into the future while the state is making big investments in our children's education. This is the definition of good governance and we should be proud of the leadership at the top from Branstad for this.
