Expand broadband capabilities to every corner of rural Iowa
While I love our capital city, I believe the heart, soul, and spirit of Iowa will always remain in our small towns and rural communities. Like many of you, I grew up in one of those small towns and when I go home, I hear the disappointment and I share
the frustration when another storefront closes.
So today I'm announcing a new initiative that focuses on rural Iowa, which I have asked Lieutenant Governor Gregg to lead. We will bring together leaders from across
Iowa with different backgrounds to be part of this effort. Iowans who have lived in rural communities all of their lives, those who recently moved there, young professionals, successful business owners, and those just starting out.
This new initiative will promote investment and connect rural Iowa by expanding broadband capabilities in every corner of our state. Our goal: to keep and bring home Iowa's sons and daughters and grow the next generation of community leaders.

STEM initiative to prepare for a 21st century economy
To ensure that our children are prepared for a 21st century economy we advanced a nationally recognized STEM initiative that gives students the confidence and skills for rewarding careers.
The STEM initiative is led by Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and Kemin Industries, and has seen outstanding growth and success. Sustaining these measures over time is critical to get the right results for our students and our state.
