DES MOINES – Iowa Democratic Party Chair, Representative Tyler Olson today issued the following statement after MidAmerican Energy announced they will be investing $1.9 billion in wind energy in Iowa.
“Today is a great day for the state of Iowa and would not have been possible without the forward thinking of Governors Tom Vilsack and Chet Culver and Democrats in the state legislature. Democrats years ago had the vision of making Iowa the wind energy capital of the world, and today’s announcement is just one more example that this dream is becoming a reality. The Iowa Democratic Party would like to say thank you to Tom Vilsack, Chet Culver, and legislative Democrats for making Iowa the leader in renewable energy.”
