Culver plans tour to highlight I-JOBS initiative


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Gov. Chet Culver is launching a state visit Friday in Des Moines to kick off the "Shovel Ready" tour to promote the I-JOBS initiative.

The $750 million plan, which Culver says would create jobs by addressing infrastructure needs, would be paid for by state gaming revenue.

He and Lt. Gov. Patty Judge plan to travel the state over the coming weeks to tout the plan.

Culver says once the initiative is passed Iowans can begin rebuilding the state and putting people back to work.

Culver begins the tour at the new Des Moines Area Transit Authority hub in downtown Des Moines.
