Unfortunately, scam artists and thieves are very comfortable using the regular routine of getting gas, renting a movie at an automated machine and getting cash from an ATM to steal your money and identity. Not only do these thieves compromise Iowans’ financial well-being, they also compromise Iowans’ trust in their transactions and institutions, as well as each other.

As your U.S. Representative for Iowa’s Third Congressional District, I make it my mission to meet with and listen to folks in each of our 16 counties, each month.

In particular, many have expressed frustration with the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule to expand the scope of federal authority over land and waterways - a rule that threatens our farmers and job creators in Iowa and across the country.
