Iowa Governor Terry Branstad item vetoed key priorities of Democrats today that would help Iowa’s 64,000 small businesses and 240,000 working families.  Those ideas were included in Senate File 209 and were approved by both the House and Senate on unanimous votes.  The top Democrat on the House Appropriations, Rep. Tyler Olson, release the following statement after the veto:

“The bipartisan compromise passed unanimously by the House and Senate earlier this week will help small businesses and 240,000 working families. Unfortunately, Governor Branstad’s reckless action today unravels the compromise. His insistence on rewarding special interests and big corporations at the expense of small businesses and middle class families is bad for Iowa and a serious blow to bipartisanship.”
