Governor Takes Arizona Vacation
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad is taking a little break from budget debates to take a family trip to Arizona.
Spokesman Tim Albrecht says Branstad will leave Friday and return March 23rd.
Albrecht calls the trip an annual spring break vacation for Branstad and his family. Albrecht declined to provide Branstad's exact destination.
Albrecht says Branstad checks in daily with staff when he is out of town.
The Legislature will continue its work while the governor is away.
