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.

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