Branstad Set to Name 2 New Regents on Tuesday

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he plans on naming two new members to the Iowa Board of Regents on Tuesday.
Branstad, speaking to reporters in Iowa City while touring flooded areas, says he's decided to name the new board members prior to Wednesday's meeting of the regents.
Earlier in the day Branstad indicated he'd be naming the new members within the next couple of weeks.
The Senate in April didn't give the appointments of Craig Lang and Robert Cramer the two-thirds majority required for their approval to the Board of Regents, a nine-member board that oversees Iowa's three public universities.
Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht says Branstad finished interviewing Monday morning and made the decision to announce the appointments.
The board is scheduled to meet Wednesday in Iowa City.
