DES MOINES, IA - Iowa Congressman David Young departed late Sunday evening August 6th to begin a seven day visit to Israel.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA - Iowa Congressman David Young announced the Second Annual Iowa Senior Wellness and Security Expo will take place this Saturday, July 29th at Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
The Expo connects Iowa seniors, their families and caretakers with a variety of services and resources available to them. The event features a one-stop-shop with representatives from over 30 local, regional, state and federal organizations and agencies dedicated to serving seniors.
The week ahead overview will be sent each week Congress is in session. All times are in Central Time.
Human trafficking is a horrific activity that destroys lives.
Over the past three years the U.S. House of Representatives has enacted legislation to fight the crime and help victims of the crime.
Most recently the House approved a sweeping reauthorization of the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, a law that combats human trafficking by allocating funding for prevention efforts and programs that identify and assist victims of all types of human trafficking.
