January 19, 2018 Weekly Report

Too often the bureaucracy and mindset of Washington, D.C. leaves rural America behind. From unworkable and unnecessary regulations to a lack of appropriate funding for critical projects, Americans and Iowans in rural areas seem to have been forgotten by the federal government.

As I travel across the Third District meeting with Iowans, holding town halls, and listening to folks’ stories, I gather their triumphs, struggles, solutions, frustrations, and concerns to carry with me to Congress and work on real solutions to the issues Iowans are facing.

August 23, 2017 Survey

As I travel to each of the 16 counties of Iowa's Third Congressional District each and every month, I meet with Iowans to hear what is most important to them.

It’s been difficult to hear or see the reality over the blaring and flashing “BREAKING NEWS” alerts which fill the airwaves continuously each broadcast hour.

The reality is the most common sounds coming from the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017 are the words “the bill is passed”.
