As we continue to monitor what legislators are speaking out in the aftermath of additional mitigation measures put in place by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, we want to highlight State Senator-elect Jeff Taylor’s words.

“I agree that 29C needs to be revised,” he said. “It places too much responsibility and power in the hands of one person.”

This now adds Taylor to the following list:

REP. WHEELER: Cannot support many of new mitigation efforts

REP. HOLT: Cannot support portions of Reynolds’ safety measures

REP. SALMON: Disaster emergency law has no protections for our rights, liberties and needs changed

Cisneros says new restrictions on Iowans and their businesses are a ‘step too far’
