On day 1, House Republicans put out a list of House Files 1-13, outlining our priorities for this 2023 session.  As I sit here today, 8 have been sent to the Governor’s Desk. And we followed through on another four on our side of the rotunda.

We made property tax reform House File 1. It was a top concern for Iowans so it was a top priority for us. This week, we sent $100 million in property tax relief to the Governor’s Desk. And laid the groundwork to further the conversation and deliver more relief in the future.

In response to workforce challenges, this year’s budget launched the Workforce Grant Incentive Program with 6.5 million dollars to fund scholarships for students studying to fill high-need jobs in Iowa.

We hear consistently from parents about the leftist indoctrination taking place in our schools. So we expanded school choice, prohibited curriculum that isn’t age-appropriate, and made sure schools can’t keep secrets from parents.

Honestly, our plan year after year is simple.  We just listen to Iowans.

House Republicans represent all 99 of Iowa’s 99 counties. We’re in a better position than ever to have our pulse on the priorities of Iowans.

We listened to Iowans.
We told Iowans our agenda.
And we delivered on our promises.

And we have A LOT to be proud of from this session.
