Committee Investigating Iowa Veterans Home Construction
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX 28) - A Senate oversight committee is looking into Executive Branch practices concerning the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.
Monday, seven witnesses spoke to the committee; it hopes to figure out if state bidding practices were followed and if money was appropriately spent on construction projects there.
Around $100 million was authorized by the legislature and federal grants were set aside to pay for more than half of that.
Lawmakers are concerned that money was misspent and companies were hired without going through the right channels.
Another meeting is set for June 25th.
