A state legislator from Dubuque County has been named chairman of a House committee.
Republican Representative Shannon Lundgren of Peosta will serve as the Chairman of the House Human Resources Committee during the 88th General Assembly.
The promotion means Lundgren will help guide the state’s health policies in the Iowa House. In a press release issued Tuesday, Lundgren says health care issues were the most-talked about concern on the campaign trail. She says she’s looking forward to working on making improvements during the next two years as Committee Chair.
Lundgren was a member of both the Human Resources Committee and the Health and Human Services Budget Subcommittee during her first term in the Iowa House. Most recently, she served as Vice Chairman of the Economic Growth Committee.
The legislative session begins January 14th.
