Branstad asks for resignations

DES MOINES (KWWL) --  Governor-elect Terry Branstad has sent letters to all Iowa department heads asking for their resignation. About 30 department heads will need to submit their letters of resignation by Dec. 15.

The process has become a fairly standard practice when a new governor is elected. Former governor Tom Vilsack asked for resignations when he took office, as did current Governor Chet Culver.

Branstad will review each position, and he reserves the right to reject the resignation.
