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.
