Thursday, July 8, 2010 N/Warren Town and County News Page Seven , U.S. Chamber of Com- merce praises Iowa ef- forts to encourage new job creation: Many na- tional reports have drawn attention to Iowa's solid fiscal management and economic strength. The latest comes from the U.S. Chamber of Com- merce and the National Chamber Foundation. It ranks Iowa eighth in the nation for state policies that support private sector job creation. According to the Enter- prising States study, "Iowa's approach to eco- nomic development fo- cuses on developing a skilled workforce, increas- ing job and wealth creation and promoting entrepre- neurship." The report goes on to explain that "Iowa has made a concerted effort to assist businesses to be more competitive, inrova- tive and profitable in ex- panding international trade and exports." More information about the study is available at http://ncf.uschamber. com/enterprising- states/, Iowa's economy cre- ates jobs, puts people back to work: Everyone I talk to hopes Iowa contin- ues to rebound from the lingering national reces- sion as quickly and as strongly as possible.
