Governor on ICN sale: “We’ll see.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-Des Moines) this morning suggested the state should explore the idea of selling or leasing the state-owned Iowa Communications Network.  This afternoon, Governor Chet Culver — a fellow Democrat — was asked his opinion.

Henderson/me:  "This morning Rep. McCarthy floated the idea of selling the Iowa Communications Network.  Do you think that's a good idea?"

Culver:  "I've had no discussions with the leader on that and maybe it'll come up at our leadership meeting next week.  First I've heard about it."

The Des Moines Register's Tony Leys:  "Do you think it's worth considering?"

Culver:  "I don't have enough information about it.  We'll see."
