Branstad won't ask for extra transition cash

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Governor-elect Terry Branstad says he won't ask for extra tax payer money during his transition into power.

Iowa has $10,000 set aside to smooth the transition, that's among the lowest costs in the nation. The low amount pushed branstad to fundraise and use volunteers to form policy.

Iowa democrats and republicans agree ten thousand is not enough, but say it's not likely to change this year.
