(DES MOINES) – Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds used their weekly press conference this morning to highlight the state’s ongoing efforts to address the impact of this summer’s drought in Iowa.
The most recent USDA drought monitor shows that almost 75% of Iowa is now in the D-2 severe drought stage and roughly 25% in the D-3 extreme drought stage. At the time of the governor and lieutenant governor’s drought summit in Mt. Pleasant less than two weeks.
Joining them at the news conference was Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, Department of Natural Resources Director Chuck Gipp, Department of Transportation Director Paul Trombino, and Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Mark Schouten.
Branstad and Reynolds will continue their efforts, and wanted to ensure Iowans were aware of the following measures that have been taken thus far:
“We want to assure Iowans that every effort will be taken on their behalf with regard to this drought,” said Gov. Branstad. “We will work with federal partners, state agencies and departments, and all Iowans as we combat the effects of this drought. This is a top priority of my administration.”
The lieutenant governor noted that the administration is taking a proactive strategy with regard to the drought.
“Our administration firmly believes that the best way to attack any potential disaster is through a proactive strategy,” said Reynolds. “We will continue to engage every department and agency that has a role to play in these efforts.”# # #
