Iowa Leaders to Discuss Weather Swings in Iowa

   DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Government leaders in Iowa will gather in Des Moines next month to consider the costs and implications of the extreme weather swings that have increasingly hit Iowa.
   The University of Iowa Public Policy Center is among the hosts of the symposium on Dec. 11 at Hy-Vee Hall. Top Iowa leaders in the fields of transportation, agriculture, higher education, natural resources and insurance are among those expected to attend.
   The goals of the event are to better understand the challenges facing Iowa due to extreme weather such as floods and droughts; the cost of the impacts to different sectors of Iowa's economy; and how to adapt to the change.
   Organizers say that specific policy proposals could come out of the discussions at the symposium.
