July 16, 2018 Weekly Report

For the first time since 2000, there are more job openings than there are people looking for jobs. Across the Third District, Iowans are seeing bigger paychecks as a result of tax relief signed into law last year. Nationally, 90 percent of workers are taking home more money than they were before the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law.

July 9, 2018 Weekly Report

Iowans know our seniors provide a strong foundation in our communities. Whether parents or grandparents, friends or neighbors, our seniors across the country impart life lessons and wisdom. They continue to contribute lifetimes of experience - as teachers, doctors and nurses, servicemen and women, business owners, mentors - and more to make our nation great.

As our loved ones age, it’s our responsibility to make sure they are able to live well and as independently as possible by ensuring they have access to the information and resources they need.

Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement on Scott Pruitt's resignation as EPA Administrator: 

"Scott Pruitt’s departure is long overdue. His actions as EPA administrator not only raised serious ethical concerns, but hurt Iowa farmers by recklessly undercutting the Renewable Fuel Standard. It is my hope that Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler will uphold the President's commitment to the RFS and get the EPA back on track."

Iowa Congressman David Young supported H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, also known as the rescission package, which passed the House of Representatives this evening. 

"Washington has a spending problem and this rescissions package brings back taxpayer dollars which either can't be spent or were unused - this is simply Iowa commonsense," said Congressman Young.

On one of my many school visits, I visited an elementary school here in the Third District. I sat with students during their breakfast and when the bell rang, signaling the time to head to their classroom, I watched students walk to the garbage can and dump trays full of food into it. Whole bananas, unopened cartons of milk, and other untouched foods simply dropped into the trash.

This past week was National Small Business Week and I visited small businesses across the Third District. I spoke with small business owners, employees, and community leaders seeing the benefits of tax relief firsthand. From bonuses to wage increases to business expansion, Iowa communities are feeling positive effects of Iowans keeping more of their hard-earned dollars. 

I started off the week in Urbandale at a round table with a combination of business owners and employees who are members of the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce.

April 23, 2018 Weekly Report

Another tax day has come and gone. Iowans across the Third District have filed their tax forms with the Internal Revenue Service and too many have experienced frustrations over a lack of customer service, complicated process, or getting answers to basic questions. Unfortunately, too many were also targeted by identity thieves and scammers who impersonate the IRS. These criminals can upend lives in a matter of minutes.
