Former Iowa Gov. Chet Culver has formed a business consulting firm that seeks to promote his experience in infrastructure development and renewable energy.
The Chet Culver Group hopes to work with public and private entities. While in office, Culver won legislative approval for a $700 million public works program and increased the use of renewable energy in the state to 20% from 5%. Culver, a Democrat, lost his re-election bid last November to Republican Terry Branstad, who took office earlier this year.
