Brandstad Opposes Cuts to National Guard

Governor Terry Branstad is joining with the rest of the nation's governors to oppose any cuts to the National Guard. Branstad said Friday that all 50 governors had signed a letter to President Barack Obama expressing concerns about proposed cuts to the Guard in the federal budget. Branstad raised these issues with Obama this week during a meeting of the National Governors Association in Washington. Branstad was reappointed this week as co-chair of the Council of Governors. The council was established in 2010 to strengthen collaboration between federal and state governments on national security issues.
