DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Governor Kim Reynolds spoke with President Donald Trump over the phone this morning about the state of health care in the country, as well as renewable fuels.

The call comes ahead of a news conference the governor will speak at in Pella this afternoon at 1:30 p.m.

The Press Secretary for Governor Reynolds says this morning's conversation was "a very positive and productive call." On top of the country's health care system, the governor and President Trump discussed "the importance of renewable fuels to the Iowa economy."

Recently, both of Iowa's senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst also said they discussed the topic of renewable fuels with national leaders. Sen. Grassley tweeted that he spoke with President Trump about ethanol, while Sen. Ernst sat down with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt this week to discuss protecting the Renewable Fuel Standard.
