Iowa lawmakers say they've compromised on a workforce budget

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa lawmakers say they've reached a compromise that will maintain funding for 36 workforce development centers around the state.

Lawmakers say they will maintain the $8.6 million package approved last year to fund the offices. The measure is scheduled for approval by a house committee later this week.

Action on the matter comes after an Iowa Supreme Court ruled Governor Terry Branstad overstepped his authority by vetoing part of the agencies funding.
