Economic Leaders Meet to Discuss Proposals


By Rachel Begle

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Economic leaders in Iowa are set to discuss several financial proposals around the state.

The Des Moines Register reports the Iowa Economic Development Authority Board will meet Thursday morning. Its monthly meeting was canceled last week after a major snowstorm.

The board is expected to consider several proposals. They include a $940,000 expansion for a production facility in Spencer, a request for $300,000 in tax credits for a Waterloo facility, and several loans for a $2.4 million expansion for a software company in West Des Moines.

Projects slated for consideration last week will be brought up during January's meeting.
