99 County Meeting Update
Monday, July 20, 2020
Representative government is a two-way street. To hold up my part of that commitment, I’m on my 40th year of holding at least one Q&A in every county, every year.
Over the past two weeks, I had Q&As in 29 counties. Iowans raised their concerns about the virus, unemployment insurance, the rising cost of prescription drugs and access to rural broadband.
Iowans applauded Congress’ swift action on programs like the Paycheck Protection Program and getting much needed resources to rural health care providers.
As always, I will bring Iowans’ voices to the policymaking tables and I look forward to finishing my annual 99 county meetings later this year.
