The 85th General Assembly Convenes
Happy New Year to you all and hoping you had a Merry Christmas as well.
As the gavel fell this past Monday to kick off the new session, I was sworn in for my new term with much excitement and optimism. A top priority of mine this year is to return some of your hard-earned tax dollars back to you. As you may have heard, our revenues are up from previous years. This news should not signal lawmakers to go on a spending spree and now is not the time to grow government, rather I support shrinking the size of government and returning this money to all Iowa taxpayers.
Most importantly we, as legislators, need to keep in mind that when elected people are sent to DC with the courage to shrink the crippling national debt, we should be prepared as a state to have sufficient funds in our coffers to offset what the federal government will cut in support of state programs.
I look forward to communicating with you weekly on updates from the Golden Dome. Please join me at one of my upcoming forums sponsored by the Great Urbandale Chamber Offices 2900 Justin Drive Urbandale.
