Area Legislators Talk Priorities for 2018 Session


It’s Week Two of the Iowa Legislative Session.

Governor Kim Reynolds highlighted multiple priorities in her Condition of the State speech last week. And Republicans have indicated strong support for several proposals in the speech, like reducing taxes and expanding workforce opportunities.

Republican State Senator Dan Zumbach of Ryan talks about his priorities this session.

Fellow Republican legislator, State Representative Lee Hein of Monticello, says his number one priority year to year usually remain the same.

Issues not discussed in Governor Reynold’s speech last Tuesday such as the death penalty and immigration, or issues only briefly mentioned such as abortion and school choice, could surface to the top of lawmakers’ agenda.
