At the beginning of each legislative session I distribute my Legislative Issue Survey to my House district. Once again this year, I received a great response from my constituents – the second highest return rate that I’ve had. This year more than 500 households responded, sharing with me their opinions and views. This consecutive year of heighted interest proves to me that right now, more than ever, Iowans are paying attention to what their government is doing at all levels. It also proves that they are speaking up and making their voices heard. I am encouraged knowing that Iowans are involved and taking the time out of their busy schedules to weigh in on important issues facing our state.
As I construct this survey each year, I try to keep its focus on issues at the forefront of discussion and debate. The questions I asked included topics on the economy, taxes, spending, education and infrastructure. Below you will find the results to the questions asked on the survey.
