Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans are putting our state at greater financial risk with a tax scheme that is a bad deal for most Iowans. The legislation signed into law today is bursting with giveaways to millionaires, wealthy corporations and people who don’t live in Iowa.
All bills passed by the Legislature and sent to the Governor for her signature during the 2018 session. SF 481 – “Sanctuary city” ban SF 2226 – Groundwater hazard statements with county recorder SF 2227 […]
This Memorial Day, there are many ways to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Fly the flag, take a walk through the cemetery or visit a local monument. No matter where we are, we can all join in the National Moment of Remembrance observed across the country at 3 p.m. on May 28.
Senate Republicans leaders said their agenda was simple: “KICK THE DOOR IN!” Unfortunately, Iowans are already feeling the consequences of having the door kicked in on them. The Republican-controlled legislature and Governor Reynolds did a lot of bad things to good people this session.

This session, we heard from thousands of Iowans who work hard but struggle to get by. They just want a decent-paying job and the chance to lead a happy, healthy life. Our job in the Legislature is to listen and work to improve the lives of everyday Iowans.
In the past two years, Governor Reynolds and other the Republican-controlled Legislature have made our state more dangerous for Iowa women. Instead of improving health care access for women, Governor Reynolds and the Republican-controlled Legislature have pushed through policies that put more women at risk.

“I have always been interested in politics, so I was thrilled when I discovered there is a way to get involved at a young age. I believe that it’s important to gain real-world experience in a career field before deciding to go into it…. I hoped being a page would help me figure out if politics is where I should be headed.” –Tali Tesar of Clear Lake
