Iowa: The Best Place to Raise a Family

Labor Day is near which brings us a much deserved long weekend to spend with family and friends.  This also means that classes will resume for the thousands of students from all across the state.  Good luck to all Iowa students who will soon be heading back to school in the coming days or who have already begun their school year!

Since first being elected to the Iowa House, one of my primary goals has been to make Iowa a great place to raise a family or grow a business.  Over the years we’ve made great strides to improve the state’s business climate and make Iowa as family-friendly as possible.  Whether that’s providing a world-class education to our children or easing the tax burden on Iowans, House Republicans have always put families first.  This hard work is paying off.
