Grassley Planning Annual Visits to Iowa’s 99 Counties


As 2015 wraps up, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says he’s looking ahead to the new year with the promise of getting more accomplished in Washington D.C. Grassley, a Republican, says if there were three items on his legislative wish list for the year ahead, they’d revolve around the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs.

Last week, Grassley released a long list of what he sees as major accomplishments during the year, including new reforms in health care, accountability for sexual assaults, and advancements for energy, including renewable fuels. He says 2016 should bring more progress.

Grassley holds a meeting in each of Iowa’s 99 counties every year and plans are underway to do it again in 2016. Grassley made a visit to Kendrick Forest Products in Edgewood for his Delaware County stop earlier this year. We’ll let you know the dates and locations for his 2016 area visits when they are announced.
