Report: Some IA dept. heads balk at pay cuts

DES MOINES (KWWL) -  After taking a 10% pay cut, Governor Chet Culver said the leaders of all state agencies will also take that cut but not all support the idea.  Of the 32 agency heads, 25 promise to take the cut, while 5 remain undecided and 2 are against the cuts including Iowa Department of Public Defense Adjutant General Timothy Orr and Iowa Lottery head Terry Rich.   However, the governor says saying ''no'' is not an option.   He told the Des Moines Register yesterday all department heads will see a 10% cut.
