Today, Speaker Pat Grassley (R-New Hartford) issued the following statement in response to the court’s mask mandate ruling:

“For Iowa House Republicans, our position has been clear: Give Iowans the freedom to make the best decision for themselves and their families. As your elected Legislature, we took necessary steps to return decision-maker power to parents. This partisan federal judge’s decision strips parents of those freedoms we fought so hard to protect. Iowa House Republicans support any and all legal options to reverse this decision and uphold this state law.”
