DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican leaders in the Iowa House plan to unveil their budget spending goals.

Lawmakers have scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to announce their "budget targets" for the 2013-2014 state budget.

Gov. Terry Branstad announced a $6.5 billion spending plan last month. Leaders in the Republican-controlled House review his plan and then develop their own budget proposal.

The Democratic-majority Senate will also put out a plan. The lawmakers must then negotiate a final version of the budget.
