Des Moines, Iowa (AP) — Governor of Iowa, Kim Reynolds, said he refused $ 95 million in federal funding for coronavirus testing at schools because he thought there was no need for funding.

Republican Reynolds announced her decision at the Fox News show Thursday night and criticized President Joe Biden’s administration for funding to expand the test.

The Iowa Republican Party praised Reynolds’ decision, saying that the Biden administration failed to return students to the classroom directly, but Reynolds succeeded.

Democratic state auditor Rob Sandoz has criticized the governor for “playing politics on Iowan’s health and taxes.”
