Iowa State Senate President Jake Chapman (R-Adel) has, on three separate occasions, played the key role in sabotaging years of bipartisan work to improve the rights and living conditions of Iowans living in manufactured or mobile homes.
Iowa gets a failing grade when it comes to protecting kids from sexual abuse & trafficking. SF 32 would remove the civil statute of limitations for people who were abused as minors, allowing them to come forward as adults, seek justice, expose hidden predators & protect more kids from becoming victims.
“Iowa Democrats will listen to, and advocate for, the families and workers in Glenwood during this closure to make sure they are heard throughout this difficult process.”
Our plan rewards work, not wealth. We believe that we need to support Iowa workers, who are the backbone of our economy, with lower costs and tax cuts, rather than what Republicans want to do, which is supporting the super-rich and corporations who continue to get richer while working Iowans get left behind.
Thanks to President Biden and Congresswoman Cindy Axne, at least $5 billion will arrive in Iowa over the next five years to help rebuild crumbling infrastructure. Iowa will get even more help in areas where we need it most, specifically with bridges, rural broadband and water treatment systems.
The commitment of Iowans to serve our country has been strong since the Civil War. That’s why the Legislature has worked to make Iowa a great place for veterans and their families, encourage returning service members to make Iowa their home, and ensure they receive the education, job opportunities and quality of life they deserve.
We need an economy that works for hard-working Iowans, not the top 1%. Democrats will continue to fight and show up for workers and retirees who have earned a bigger paycheck and secure retirement. Republicans haven’t shown up to support striking workers for one simple reason: they don’t support them.
Today, the Iowa Legislature approved a non-partisan redistricting plan in a strong, bipartisan vote. This is a win for all Iowans who care about our government and about our ability to come together, solve problems, and improve people’s lives.
If Republicans vote down the second map, that will be the clearest sign yet that they are rushing to gerrymander Iowa’s legislative map and rig election outcomes in their favor. They can make a definitive statement today against gerrymandering by stating they’ll vote for the fair, non-partisan maps that were just released.
New Butchery Innovation & Revitalization grants, approved by the Legislature this year, will create good jobs and ensure fresh, healthy food moves seamlessly from farm to table.
