Questions raised over one-time spending bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A bill passed just before 4 a.m. Thursday as one of the final actions of the year for the Iowa House is packed with nearly $80 million worth of government spending, including money to repair a former governor's grave, to preserve Civil War muster rolls, and to host the Midwest United States-Japan Conference in Des Moines in September.

The bill, which also passed the Senate, pays off about $60 million in state debt, a move held up by legislative leaders as a proud accomplishment this year. However that debt payoff was linked in a single bill to several spending measures debated only in the final hours of the legislative session.

Gov. Terry Branstad says he's concerned about the one-time spending and will look at it carefully before signing it.
