Dear Iowa, Can I Have Another $20 Million Dollars? Love, Rainforest

The Cedar Rapids Gazette has this on the front page of their closed web site:
CORALVILLE, IA - Officials for the $180 million Environmental Project will seek $20 million in Vision Iowa funds for the 4.5-acre indoor rain forest they've proposed, The Gazette reports in a copyrighted story. The request, a joint submission by The Environmental Project and city of Coralville, is expected to be filed by the next deadline, July 1, an application draft examined by the newspaper shows.
I'm sure other newspapers will be on this as the day progresses, but nothing is out there right now.
