In this Dec. 19, 2012 photo, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad works in his office at the Statehouse in Des Moines, Iowa. Iowa is one of only three states where control of the legislature is split between the parties. Instead of laying out bold initiatives for overhauling taxes or education, Branstad and legislative leaders are trying to figure out a few things they can agree on so that when the session is over, they won't wind up with nothing.
