Government Oversight calls in 2 state officials

Meeting set on secret settlements

DES MOINES — The Senate Government Oversight Committee has set another hearing to ask more questions about government payments to former workers for secrecy and other issues they believe could be problems in the executive branch.

Democratic Sen. Janet Petersen, who chairs the oversight committee, has set a meeting for 2:30 p.m. Monday and two Department of Administrative Services officials who didn't come last week say they'll appear.

They are Doug Woodley, DAS general services enterprise chief operating officer, and Paul Carlson, the agency's chief resource maximization officer.

Peterson says she wants to know more about settlement agreements and how the state handled layoffs during 2011 restructuring.

She says the House Oversight Committee also has agreed to participate in the hearing at the Capitol.
