A three-point reform plan to prevent another Iowa child from being injured or killed by abuse has been put forth by two members of the Iowa Senate Government Oversight Committee. Senators Petersen and McCoy released the plan to prevent another death like that of Sabrina Ray. The Iowa teen had been adopted out of foster care and was being home-schooled when her body was found last Friday in a Perry home.

Democrats continue to stand up to the attack on hard-working Iowans. We won’t support unnecessary cuts that threaten public safety, the quality of higher education and job training, and the safety net provided by social services. Economic prosperity and fiscal responsibility will return when the Governor, Lt. Governor and legislators work in a bipartisan way to make smart investments in Iowa and Iowans.
