Brian McDonough, class of 2012, is the lead author of a just released paper titled, "Advice Ignored: "Climate Change and Iowa Water Quality Policy." The paper was completed during his internship at the Iowa Policy Project and is co-authored with Will Hoyer and executive director David Osterberg. Thier work focuses on poor state policy attention to well-researched strategies to mitigate flooding issues and promote better watershed management in the face of climate change and greater flooding threats. An article about the paper appeared in the May 22nd Des Moines Register newspaper.
