Republicans Attempt to Block Jobs in Marshalltown

A week after Alliant pulled the plug on the proposed coal-fired power plant in Marshalltown, costing the community jobs over the next five years, Republicans in the Iowa Senate are attempting to block a construction project at the Iowa Veterans that would create many jobs in the community.

From Iowa Independent...

Senate passed the bonding plan to fund upgrades at corrections facilities across the state, improvements at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown, several state Department of Natural Resources projects and repairs and maintenance at state facilities. Democrats contend that the money will create 5,000 jobs. Republicans say the plan spends too much on unneeded projects.

All 18 Republican Senators voted against the measure.
