April 28, 2017 Weekly Report


The county courthouse, the hometown cafe, and the mom and pop shop on the square across Iowa are a few of the defining features making our beautiful state unique. Our small town values have defined us for centuries and our work ethic has kept us humble. Unfortunately, over the past few years, we have seen small towns getting smaller and the mom and pop shops we have been visiting for years are closing their doors, threatening our every day way of life.

February 2, 2017 Weekly Report

Rural Iowa is God’s country. There’s something special about living and working in the heartland but we all know rural America has seen some recent economic challenges. These challenges risk people leaving rural areas to seek opportunities elsewhere.  Here in Iowa, our communities are working hard to reverse these trends by building and starting new businesses in rural areas across the state.

As I travel through Iowa’s Third District each week, I hear frustrations from many of our friends and neighbors who simply want Washington to get out of the way and stop telling them how to live their lives or run their businesses.

Iowa families and job creators have to balance their budgets everyday. Even the Iowa legislature is not allowed to spend more than they take in. I believe the federal government should have to do so as well. This is why I recently joined a group of legislators and called for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Do you support a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution?
February 19, 2016 Weekly Report
Growing up in Van Meter, I learned the value of a dollar as a young boy, waking up early to deliver newspapers to the folks in our community. After moving to Johnston as a teenager, I spent my summers in the hot sun working at the Iowa State Fair or as a decontamination aide at a hospital. In college in Des Moines, I waited tables at a restaurant. My parents and grandparents instilled in me a strong Iowa work ethic - I worked hard - while knowing that anyone who puts in the time, the effort and the energy can achieve endless opportunity in this great country.

Today, Iowa Congressman David Young pressed U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack on the USDA’s efforts to improve and renew strength in our agriculture economy.

February 7, 2016 Survey
In December of 2007, hardworking Iowans began to face the hard-hitting reality of a historic global recession. Indicators have reported improvements to some areas of the nation’s economy, but figures have consistently shown that jobs and economic growth are recovering at the slowest rate in decades.
February 5, 2016 Weekly Report
As I travel each of the 16 counties of the Third Congressional District each month, Iowans often tell me they haven’t seen a raise in their paychecks in years, or that their incomes have never recovered from the 2008 recession. I hear from parents who sit down around the kitchen table at night and try to figure out how to stretch every dollar to provide for their families and their retirement. Folks are constantly reevaluating every expense to see if they can still afford it. As your U.S Representative in Congress, I try to take that same level of scrutiny to every line of the federal budget.
