Gov. Branstad to Announce Largest Ever Iowa Investment

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad is scheduled to announce an economic development project that he is touting as the largest in state history.
   A news conference is set for Wednesday afternoon in the Iowa Capitol.
   A press release says that Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will announce the "largest-ever economic development investment in Iowa."
   To be the largest economic development project, the new proposal would need to top the construction of a $1.8 billion fertilizer plant in southeast Iowa's Lee County. That plant is being built by Orascom, a company based in Egypt.
   Branstad has made job creation and business attraction a key focus of his administration.
