Iowa Senator Randy Feenstra (R-Hull) has announced he is stepping down as chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Feenstra is running for Congressman Steve King’s seat in the Fourth District.
“Since regaining the majority in 2016, the Ways and Means Committee has produced significant pro-growth, pro-taxpayer reforms under my leadership. From income tax reform to property tax reform, this committee has protected the taxpayer, rewarded work, and encouraged investment. Additionally, I worked productively with the House, Senate, and Governor Reynolds to see policy ideas become results for Iowa,” Feenstra said.
“The income tax reform bill in 2018 was the largest income tax cut in Iowa history. It also significantly reduced the complexity of the tax code, providing simplicity and certainty for Iowa job creators. I have spoken with Senator Whitver about my desire to be engaged on tax reform efforts in 2020 and he has assured me I will retain a key policy role as our caucus continues to implement pro-growth tax reforms.”
