Governor Chet Culver’s across the board budget cuts could mean fewer officers on Iowa roadways. Department of Public Safety Spokeswoman Courtney Greene says there are 54 proposed layoffs.

She says they also plan to save money by keeping motor vehicles longer and holding off on new equipment purchases.
