Infrastructure investment is needed in rural areas too
Another subject Hubbell touched on was infrastructure. "We need to put infrastructure investments all across our state," he said. "Unfortunately, I think what we've seen with Gov. [Kim] Reynolds and the current legislature is that most of the
infrastructure seems to be put in the two corridors--Des Moines-Ames and Iowa City-Cedar Rapids." While Hubbell said those areas do have infrastructure needs, he added rural Iowa must also see such improvements.
