I work hard to develop bills that are good for our district and all of Iowa. Although there are some bills that are partisan, most of the bills I vote on are supported by Democrats and Republicans.

Last year I had a bill written to allow barbers to have a mobile barbering service. I learned in some areas of the state, especially in challenged areas of larger cities, the availability and cost of haircuts are a problem. Although it took one and a half years, I was able to get support from 100 percent of the Senate, 100 percent of the Iowa House of Representatives and the support of Governor Kim Reynolds.

Governor Reynolds signed the bill on the steps of the Iowa Capitol on Tuesday. I am honored to announce William Burt from Waterloo is now able to go into the neighborhood where he grew up with his mobile barber vehicle.
