Status Reports

 In January of 2011, Governor Terry Branstad released a set of goals aimed at improving the socio-economic environment of Iowans.  These goals include: creating 200,000 new jobs, increasing family incomes by 25 percent, providing Iowa’s youth with the best education in the nation and reducing State government costs by 15 percent.  This is the third annual report to delineate some of the opportunities and challenges Iowa faces in several areas as they relate to the attainment of these goals.  The following is a link to the statewide report.
