Monday House Republicans elected Reps. Erik Helland (R-Johnston) and Renee Schulte (R-Cedar Rapids) Assistant Minority Leaders in the Iowa House.
As Assistant Leaders, Helland and Schulte will work with the leadership team to set the agenda for the House Republican caucus. Working directly with the Minority Leader and Whip, they will relay information to fellow members, while also serving as a point-person on key legislative issues.
“Reps. Helland and Schulte are valued assets to our caucus in the House,” said House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha). “They are both dedicated representatives who bring a great deal of insight to our leadership team.”
Both Helland and Schulte were elected to the Iowa House in 2008.
