Use the Google Assistant or your Google Home device to ask for the phone number or address for a State office or department. You do not need to enable the skill "Ask the State of Iowa,” you can just ask for the phone number or have Google call the office for you. Say, "OK Google, what is the phone number for the Iowa Department of Public Health?" or "Hey Google, call the Clinton Drivers License Station."
