Branstad to Name New Appointees to Board of Regents
Updated: Monday, June 3 2013, 02:59 PM CDT
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he expects to name two new appointees to the Iowa Board of Regents in the next couple of weeks.
Branstad sought to appoint Craig Lang and Robert Cramer to the nine-member board that oversees the state's three public universities but their confirmations failed in April to gain the two-thirds majority required in the Senate for approval.
Lang, former Iowa Farm Bureau president, has been criticized for supporting Iowa State University rules that led U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin to drop plans to leave his papers at ISU. Senators also took issue with Lang's criticism of University of Iowa President Sally Mason.
Cramer, a Grimes businessman, was questioned about his conservative social views on stem cell research, gay rights and academic freedom.
