Iowa Senate News Release
For immediate release: January 15, 2019
Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen on Condition of the State address
“We are concerned that for the past two years, the Governor and legislative Republicans have pushed everyday Iowans – students, seniors, workers and women – to the back of the line. At the same time, Republicans allowed millionaires, big corporations and out-of-state MCOs to cut to the front of the line.
“We agree with the Governor when she says it’s time for her and others to deliver on their promises to fully fund mental health, rural revitalization and job training initiatives.
“When we can work with Republicans, we will. Our goal this session is to keep focused on improving the lives of everyday Iowans. Our message to Iowans is this: ‘We work for you!’”
