Some Iowa lawmakers are questioning whether Governor Terry Branstad has overstepped his authority by signing off on bonuses paid to two state directors, raising their pay beyond state salary caps. Officials say Courtney Kay-Decker, director of the Iowa Department of Revenue, has received an $800-per-pay-period housing allowance for her first year on the job. That makes her annual compensation more than $175,000, about $20,000 more than the maximum salary of $154,300. Public Safety Commissioner Brian London reportedly received a more than $16,000 recruitment bonus, making his annual pay $145,000. The cap is set at just under $129,000.
