House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) issued the following statement in response to the program review of the Iowa Film Office:
“It is outrageous that the executive branch has been administering this program for two years in violation of the laws passed by the Legislature.
“Regular Iowans are not allowed to sidestep the law and state government cannot be allowed to either.
“This is another example of why House Republicans offered proposals last year to provide a more open and transparent state government. Regrettably, these were defeated in the Senate.”
