Governor Culver is making stops in Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Davenport today, to tout some of the projects that will get financed by the $830 million borrowing plan he pushed legislators to approve late last month.
During remarks this morning in Cedar Rapids, Culver told area residents they’ll get $5 million to help rebuild the Cedar Rapids Library. "Five million more will be for the…city public works building. We’ll have an opportunity to replace that," Culver told a small crowd.
He continued reading from a list of projects: "Ten million dollars for the Czech Museum, direct assistance."
Early this afternoon Culver stopped at an historic building in Dubuque to tout new state tax credits for preservation of historic properties. At 3:30, Culver is due to speak at an event staged on a railroad loading dock in Davenport to tout the creation of a state fund the governor says will help bring passenger rail service to parts of eastern Iowa.
