From State Senator Amanada Ragan:

As 2012 comes to an end, I want to thank everyone who shared their concerns, ideas and hopes with me. You’ve made a positive difference by helping to shape Iowa’s future.

There are many reasons to look forward to 2013. Iowa’s economy is growing. To build a lasting recovery, I’ll keep speaking up for Iowa’s middle-class families and Main Street businesses. When the Legislature convenes in January, my focus will be strengthening our state’s economy and building the strongest job training system in the United States.

Much of that work happens in committees. In addition to serving as an Assistant Majority Leader in the Senate, I will chair the Human Resources Committee. I will be vice-chair of the Health & Human Services Budget, and will sit on the Appropriations, Natural Resources & Environment, Rules & Administration and Veterans Affairs committees.

By participating on these committees, I will be a voice and advocate for my 66,000 constituents in Franklin, Butler and Cerro Gordo counties.

The 85th General Assembly of the Iowa Legislature will convene on Monday, January 14. I’m getting ready by meeting with and listening to as many people as I can. If you have ideas and concerns, please share them with me.

Thanks again to all who take an active part in making our state a better place to live, work and raise a family.
