With 2023 right around the corner, the Iowa House Democrats are gearing up for the start of the new legislative session, slated to begin on January 9th. House Democrats are welcoming 15 new members and priorities remain the same: We will continue to put people over politics.

For far too long politics have gotten in the way of making progress on the issues people care about including, lowering costs for everyday Iowans, investing in public schools, protecting reproductive freedoms, and legalizing marijuana for adult use. Iowans want to start the new year off right, and they want their elected leaders to listen and focus on what’s important to them.

Just like a New Year’s Resolution, this won’t be easy and the problems we face today won’t be fixed overnight. Iowans have every right to be skeptical and we may not agree every time, but we’re committed to listening and fighting for the Iowa values we all share.
