Ladies and gentlemen of the 86th General Assembly thank you for bestowing on me the honor to serve as Speaker Pro Tem. It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve with all of you.

There are times we may not agree on the best path forward, but we all have a similar interest at heart, to do what is right by the people of Iowa.
