Governor Names New Regents
Updated: Tuesday, June 4 2013, 12:23 PM CDT
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has filled two vacancies on the Iowa Board of Regents, naming a former state senator and a construction business owner to the panel that oversees the state's three public universities.
Branstad announced the appointments Tuesday morning of former state Sen. Larry McKibben and construction business owner Milt Dakovich.
They will be subject to state Senate approval during the 2014 Legislature.
Their appointments came after 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 nine-member board. Branstad had asked senators to confirm Lang, who was serving on the board and had been its president, and Cramer, a new appointee.
Branstad made the appointments in advance of the next regents meeting scheduled for Wednesday.
