Two top GOP leaders on TV this weekend

The guests on this weekend’s edition of “Iowa Press” on IPTV are House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen of Hiawatha & Senate Republican Leader Paul McKinley of Chariton.  The show airs tonight at 7:30 and is rebroadcast Sunday at 11:30 a.m.

I asked the two men whether they would vote to do away with any of the state’s tax credits.  Their answers are in this Radio Iowa story.  (Condensed version: they’re “open” to the idea of killing some, but not ready to list which ones — not even the controversial tax credit for filmmakers.)

Last week’s show featured two labor leaders — AFSCME Council 61 president Danny Homan and Janice Laue of the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO.  You can watch it here.  Here’s the Radio Iowa story, focusing on what Homan and Laue had to say during the show about the state’s tax system.

The highlight of the show was when AP’s Mike Glover asked Homan what kind of relationship Governor Chet Culver, a Democrat, has with organized labor.

“We work with the governor and his staff every day. Our relationship is what it is,” Homan said.  “I mean, at times it’s difficult.  At times it’s cooperative. I think it’s a relationship that will be improved, hopefully — can be improved, hopefully.”
