U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) continues to be a voice for Iowans in the Senate. Tuesday, Ernst spoke on the issues she heard about during her conversations with Iowans across the state on her 99 County Tour over the past two weeks—including the importance of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), support for rural health care, and access to child care for Iowa’s working families.

Ernst also touted her new bill to reward the essential workers on the front lines of COVID-19 who have kept our lives going and our supply chains intact.
