(DES MOINES) –  Gov. Terry Branstad today announced he will give students of St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly, Iowa, a tour of Terrace Hill and a “behind the scenes” tour of the governor’s office after the White House abruptly canceled the students’ planned tour earlier this month. The students will visit Des Moines on Thursday, March 28, 2013.

“I am pleased the students from St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly will be able to visit Terrace Hill and the State Capitol,” said Branstad. “Just like in Washington, our Legislature is split among political parties, but we are still able to work together to better our state. I was disappointed to learn The White House canceled the students’ tour, but I hope a tour of Terrace Hill and the governor’s office will be a small consolation.”

Earlier this month, the students were the focus of an ABC News story about The White House’s cancelation of tours following sequestration.  The students launched a Facebook campaign in hopes of The White House reinstating the tours, but the students were denied their tour when visiting on March 16th.
