Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement after voting to pass the Fiscal Year 18 Appropriations bill:
"This bill includes a number of provisions which will help Iowans by rebuilding our military, securing our homeland, combating the opioid crisis, and securing our schools.
"After years of neglect, our soldiers are getting a pay raise and the resources they need to train, fight, win, and return to their families. We help secure our border and stem the flow of illegal goods into our country.
A long sought fix to Section 199A of the tax code, often referred to as the "grain glitch," was included in text of the omnibus spending package introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives today.
Today, Iowa Congressman David Young and U.S. Senator Joni Ernst along with U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley and Congressmen Steve King, Dave Loebsack, and Rod Blum sent a letter to President Trump urging him not to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum that could harm Iowa’s farmers and manufacturers.
Iowa Congressman David Young today pressed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on the administration's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum during a Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing.
Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement on President Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum:
"Tariffs are taxes on Iowans and I oppose President Trump's move to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. This action will hurt American employers, workers, and consumers and blunt the positive economic effects of the new tax relief law. The last thing we need is a trade war and this action will likely lead to retaliation."
Iowa is the best state in the country. We’ve been saying this for years. And now there is data and metrics to prove it. U.S. News and World Report released its 2018 Best States report, it shows Iowa ranked number one - something we Iowans already knew.
Every four years the national media recognizes Iowa as the “first in the nation” for our presidential caucuses. Now, we are recognized as the best state in the country - the first in the nation.
A few months ago, President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law. And before the ink was dry, Americans were seeing the benefits. Paychecks are bigger, businesses are growing, and families across the Third District have more of their hard earned money to do with as they please.
Iowa Congressman David Young today delivered a letter, cosigned by 85 of his Republican colleagues, to Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calling for changes to Section 199A in the tax code to restore the competitive balance in the agricultural marketplace. Congressman Young has been leading the effort in Congress to again put these cooperatives and businesses on a more level playing field.
Iowa’s Third District is a dynamic and diverse district. It has the most populous county in the state – Polk County – and the least populous county in the state – Adams County. There are businesses of every kind and every size, families who have lived here for generations and new families from countries around the world. It encompasses 16 counties – the sweet sixteen as I like to call them – which stretch from Mitchellville to Hamburg.
And I work in Congress to do my best to address many federal issues, no matter how many people it affects.
