DES MOINES, Iowa -- State leaders publicly aired frustrations with the federal government as Iowans struggle to recover from devastating March floods. Governor Kim Reynolds held the first meeting of the Iowa Flood Advisory Board to start gathering ideas. "Roughly 50 percent of loans at the SBA (Small Business Administration) get denied so if that's the case...if that's the last resort," Representative David Sieck, a Republican from Glenwood whose district suffered severe flooding, told fellow board members.
