Reynolds sworn in as Iowa's 43rd governor

Reynolds sworn in as Iowa's 43rd governor”

Iowa Public Television will broadcast the ceremony live.

Governor Branstad's chief of staff Michael Bousselot announced his resignation.

Reynolds will serve the remainder of Branstad's term, which ends soon after the 2018 election. He will then be sworn in as U.S. Ambassador to the People's Republic of China by Judge Steven Colloton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit.

"I will have the opportunity to share my news about the lieutenant governor process", Reynolds said.

The position of U.S. Ambassador to China is one of the most important ambassadorial positions in the world, and I am pleased to see Iowa's longest serving governor and my friend, Terry Branstad, confirmed for this position. "But sometimes we're called to serve in ways that we never imagined".

Branstad is the longest-serving governor in US history and has been presented with the Lifetime Champion of Renewable Fuels award by the Iowa Renewable Fuels Assn.

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa said the state is in good hands with Reynolds and U.S. Sen. She emphasized tax cuts aimed at spurring economic growth, though she faces budget constraints that could complicate that effort, along with plans to encourage innovation in energy production through wind power and renewable fuels.

Iowa Soybean Association President Rolland Schnell added, "Gov. Kim Reynolds is a proven advocate for farm families, supporting Iowa jobs and improving the prosperity of our local communities".

An announcement on Lt. Gov. Reynolds' decision whether or not to appoint a new lieutenant governor will be made later this week. Her third key focus will be on education. Reynolds is expected to bring in her own staff, though she has not yet revealed any names.

Branstad described Reynolds as a "policy wonk" yesterday and Reynolds acknowledged she wants to know how things work, but Reynolds said she's learned over the past six or so years as lieutenant governor that leaders delegate and trust others to follow through. This will mark the first time the state has ever had a women in Governor's Office.

Branstad signed a range of conservative-leaning legislation this year amid new Republican control of the statehouse.

Hogg criticized former Branstad for only working with Republican leaders and said Reynolds' administration could be a chance to work together. The 57-year-old Reynolds will become the first female governor in state history.
