State of the Union address

To the Editor:

President Obama laid out several Congressional proposals to strengthen our nation. Many are logical like his proposal to close loopholes that reward companies that keep profits abroad and to lower tax rates for businesses that create jobs in the U.S. Connecting businesses to research universities can help America lead the world in advanced technologies. This should encourage Congress to restore federal funding for research.

On-the-job training and apprenticeships can be facilitated by our community colleges that can design programs to meet the specific needs of employers. This is where the state of Iowa can also increase funding to community colleges and not just the three state universities.
