Iowans Looking For Ash Borer Help
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Iowa mayors are backing Representative Bruce Braley's fight against the emerald ash borer.
30 mayors signed representative Braley's letter to the Secretary of Agriculture, requesting more money to deal with the beetle infestation.
Officials want to make sure that the USDA gives Iowa the same amount of money as other states dealing with this problem.
It costs more than a thousand dollars to cut down and get rid of each tree that the borer has infested.
