Obama economic policy has completely failed to deliver robust growth

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: In order for the economy to be considered one of robust growth, the GDP needs to hit 3 percent.  Obama routinely fails to hit that mark.

The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) has issued the following news release today:

Real gross domestic product -- the value of the goods and services produced by the nation’s economy less the value of the goods and services used up in production, adjusted for price changes -- increased at an annual rate of 1.1 percent in the first quarter of 2016, according to the "third" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the fourth quarter of 2015, real GDP increased 1.4 percent.

More football recruits commit

A flurry of commitments in the 2017 recruiting class in the past couple days has bolstered an already-impressive list of commitments for Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz and the rest of his coaching staff.

A 12-2 season that culminates with a trip to the Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl, paired with top-of-the-line facilities, will do that for a program.

On Monday, the EPA Region 7 office — it's headquartered in Lenexa, Kan., and oversees Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska — announced the settlement, which includes an $8,225 civil penalty over alleged violations of the Clean Air Act and implementation of a pair of Supplemental Environmental Projects, estimated to cost $109,000.


Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he has no intention of becoming Donald Trump's running mate

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he has no intention of becoming Donald Trump's running mate.

When asked at his weekly news conference whether he'd consider joining a Trump ticket he declined to answer with an emphatic no, but said he didn't want to get into that type of speculation. He says he's honored to serve the people of Iowa and "not intending to be a candidate for national office."


Auditor gives Iowa B-plus on state budget

State Auditor Mary Mosiman is giving the Iowa Legislature and Gov. Terry Branstad high marks in developing an $8.5 billion state budget for the 2017 fiscal year, which begins July 1.

The budget represents a spending increase of about 2 percent in state appropriations compared to the current fiscal year. It will be matched by about $7 billion in federal money.

"The budget is stable and responsible," Mosiman, a Republican and a certified public accountant, told reporters Monday at a news conference at her Iowa Capitol office. She joked that she has two daughters who are teachers so she is reluctant to give state officials an A on their budget work, but she felt a B-plus was fair.
