Iowa Senate News Release
For Immediate Release: October 31, 2017

Senators will be available to news media following tour at 2:00 p.m.

Agenda for Northeast Iowa Community College visit 11-01-17

Democratic State Senators Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids and Pam Jochum of Dubuque will be touring job training programs and meeting with students at Northeast Iowa Community College from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, November 1, at the Peosta campus. They will be available to the press at 2:00 p.m. at the Main Bridge entrance to the Main Building from the southwest parking lot.

“The Republican-majority Legislature made major mid-year budget cuts to our community colleges in 2017, and failed to restore that funding going forward,” Hogg said. “We are visiting Northeast Iowa Community College to see what impact those budget cuts have had on students and job training programs and to understand better what opportunities are available through our community colleges for students if we provide the needed support.”

Earlier this year, Hogg toured industrial training facilities at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids and met with students and toured facilities at Western Iowa Tech in Sioux City.
