As pace picks up, staying focused on ways to build middle class, get Iowa back to work
We’re now just over half way through the legislative session and we’re beginning to spend more time on the House floor voting on bills and sending them over to the Senate. At the same time, we’re seeing more details from budget subcommittees about next year’s state budget. As the pace picks up on the floor and more budget decisions are made, I’m going to keep focused on ways to build the middle class and put Iowans back to work.
On the biggest issues of the session, some progress has been made but we need more dialogue and work across party lines to get the job done before adjournment in May.
One easy way to give the middle class a boost is expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit. It gives hard-working Iowans, many of whom are working two or more jobs, a tax cut to help them put food on the table or pay their bills. A bill is already moving in the Senate and it would make a difference for many families.
