MASON CITY – State senator Amanda Ragan says she sees opportunities to expand Iowa’s middle class and boost the economy through service on 2015 session’s legislative committees.

Ragan of Mason City will help shape the work of the 2015 session of the Iowa Legislature by serving on several Iowa Senate committees, where she will wield influence.

“Legislative committees are where much of the important work gets done in the Senate,” said Ragan. “Every day during the session, I’ll search for ways to strengthen Iowa’s economy and help more families reach a better future.”

Senator Ragan will continue as an Assistant Majority Leader, will become the Chair of the Health and Human Services Budget Subcommittee and serve as the Vice Chair of the Agriculture and the Human Resources Committees. She will also serve on the Appropriations, Natural Resources & Environment, Rules & Administration, and Veterans Committees.

The 86th General Assembly of the Iowa Legislature will convene on Monday, January 12, 2015.

“I’m preparing by touching base with as many constituents as I can,” Ragan said. “Anyone with ideas and concerns are encouraged to share them with me.”

Reagan did not elaborate on specifics of how the committees she will serve on will go about strengthening the middle class.

Want to strengthen the middle class? Stop prosecuting simple marijuana possessions that give people criminal records which forever stigmatize them. About tired of hearing of all these empty proposals which dodge the elephant in the room.

@Philly-here is a simple solution to your problem. QUIT BREAKING THE LAW and you won’t have any worries.

Philly…what’s stopping you from leading the charge on changing the draconian marijuana laws you continually harp about? What is it, a full time job, raising a family, a military service commitment or you’re already running a Fortune 500 company, is that what’s holding you back????

Luca Brocca nuota con i pesci. My latest project is of worldwide importance: a complete bypass of the capitalist system, and an arc of all the world’s vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, grains…designed in a city of light, high upon a mountain top, accessible only with total renunciation of all Nationalistic, capitalistic thoughts and associations. The City of Light atop Ascension Mountain.

Yeah, enjoy your swim. I’m sure it goes without saying….there will be massive greenhouses, built from tires too. Tu sei pieno di merda come un’oca Natale.

Die buzzard eet en floreer uit die kak van ander mense

Greenhouses galore…symmetry, beauty, abundance, technology…where the ascended work, live and thrive. Where buzzards cannot fly.

Ut enim ad stercore plenus, scitis quid loquaris.

Have you rolled in your own mud for the locals to enjoy?

I knew that was Latin without even looking it up. I knew you’d take the easy way out. El hombre que caga abundancia, alimenta a los suelos de la mañana.

Aw look, Philly switched to Spanish.

Of course I knew you would know that, because you’re smart like that. Smarter than the average bear Id say, but they have a reason for being unemployed and crapping in the woods. And, you don’t hear much from them either other than the occasional gnashing of teeth. Which you were more bear like. Carry on Mud-Dobber.

“Lè m ‘ vle pran yon kaka , mwen panse ke nan figi ou, epi li te ede m’ ale pi byen.”

This bear starts his flush ahead of time so his Jules Verne goes 20,000 leagues under the sea quickly…preferably with no scent.

Cum facis olfaciens, recordatus sum tui. Cum video stercore scio hactenus. Quando ingredietur pati novi enim nocui tuis. EGO iustus a quatuor libras spirent, ex ferocia et vidi visionem secundum speciem, et illud tibi.

You could only hope to be sentless. Senseless, yes. Scentless….hardly.

Buzz if you keep trying to write Latin, you’ll go blind. So I’ll switch to Swedish for you. Buzz söker toaletter fulla och foul .

@Buzz-sounds like he is stoned again.

One thing is for sure, drugs are easier to get in vegas than here.

@LVS…right now I’d guess that he is fried crispier than a piece of KFC chicken. I wonder how he’s doing with the job searches?

he said he found a job as a nanny

Oh, that’s what he said. I thought he said that he was naming me as his sole beneficiary to his entire estate, but to be prepared because as everyone already knows….he’s worth nothing. Or as some would say….he’s worthless.
