Executive Order 69 rescinded Gov. Culver’s executive order mandating the use of Project Labor Agreements and prohibits Project Labor Agreements to be used for projects involving state funds.

Executive Order 70 rescinded Gov. Vilsack’s executive order that established an automatic process that gave voting rights and right to hold public office to felons and those who committed aggravated misdemeanors. This was a major priority of Secretary of State Matt Schultz.
