State Senator Sandy Greiner has been given the task to interview the selected state Economic Development Director. Governor Terry Branstad has selected Debi Durham to be the new director. Senator Greiner says since she is the Ranking Member of the Senate Economic Growth Committee, she has the responsibility to sift through the appointments and ask the tough questions.
Senator Greiner says she is hoping the Economic Growth Committee thinks Durham will be an acceptable appointment. She says she has not heard about any resistance to her appointment.
