Governor to Iowa Board of Regents: Be careful with 'the level of spending' - the Gazette

Gov. Terry Branstad on Monday urged the Board of Regents to “live within our means” when it comes to staff salaries, especially in light of recent tuition increases that have University of Iowa resident undergraduates paying $450 more this fall than last. “I would caution that the regents need to be very cognizant of the budget limitations that we have in state government,” Branstad said during his weekly news conference in response to a reporter’s question. Last month, The Gazette reported that regents Executive Director Robert Donley earned $338,466 in salary, bonuses and deferred compensation in the 2015 budget year — more than twice the $154,300 capped salary set by lawmakers.
