Branstad priorities not OK'd as adjournment nears

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — As the end of the legislative session draws near, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad is pushing lawmakers to keep some of his priorities in mind.

Before the session began in January, Branstad focused on four priorities: reducing bullying in schools; expanding programs for veterans; extending broadband and Internet access to rural Iowans; and increasing funding for apprenticeships.

All those efforts remain alive, but none has been approved and time could be running out. Senate and House leaders say adjournment could come next week, meaning lawmakers must work quickly if the proposals are going to be approved and sent to the governor.

Branstad says he remains hopeful.
