Upmeyer: Republicans to “roll out our vision for the next legislative session”

From Rep. Linda Upmeyer –

Iowans deserve and expect to know where their representatives stand on important issues that impact their pocketbooks and livelihood. They want to know how their elected officials will help create jobs, handle your hard-earned taxpayer dollars, and improve our communities. As candidates, it is our responsibility to tell the electorate what we will do when elected…and stick to it.

This week, along with Governor Branstad and our Senate Republican colleagues, we launched a new united initiative called IOWA STRONG: Economy, Budget Leadership, Schools and Communities.

In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out our vision for the next legislative session that promises to instill certainty and stability for all Iowans. Over the course of the fall, we will provide greater detail on our plan for a prosperous Iowa economy, efficient and effective state government, and thriving schools and communities. We think you will like what you see.

Our ideas for IOWA STRONG will make Iowa a friendly place for job creators, ensure there is predictability and stability in state government, and promote safe and healthy Iowa communities. These are issues that are relevant to all Iowans and as we move forward, these are the priorities we will be focusing on.

You can count on us to work with Governor Branstad and Senate Republicans next year on the following principles:

Iowa Strong: Economy
· Promote job creation through tax relief and reform
· Eliminate job-killing red tape and burdensome regulations
· Increase career opportunities by investing in a skilled and competitive workforce
· Send a strong message that Iowa is a place to start and grow a business
Iowa Strong: Budget Leadership
· Create certainty with balanced budgets that spend less than we take in
· Save taxpayers’ money by operating an efficient and effective government
· Implement sensible state government pay and benefits
· Encourage a stable and predictable business climate that provides certainty for job creators to begin investing and hiring
Iowa Strong: Schools and Communities
· Advance education reforms that offer accountability, innovation, and choice for parents
· Promote career readiness and opportunities for future generations to prosper in Iowa
· Fight for Iowa solutions to meet Iowa needs for affordable patient-centered health care
· Preserve the values, freedoms, and liberties that are the foundation of Iowa

With the conclusion of the Iowa State Fair, it’s hard to believe that it’s already Back-to-School time. I want to provide my best wishes to our students, parents, teachers, and administrators as another school year is kicked off. I look forward to following the students’ upcoming academic and athletic successes.

As always, I appreciate hearing your thoughts and concerns. If you have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact me at or 515-281-4618.
