Grassroots group applauds Governor’s focus on education and barriers to fulfilling work  

DES MOINES, Iowa. – Americans for Prosperity-Iowa (AFP-IA) responded to Governor Kim Reynold’s 2021 state of the state address, highlighting her remarks on education and continued focus on occupational licensing reforms.

Americans for Prosperity-Iowa State Director Drew Klein issued the following statement:

“We appreciate Governor Reynolds for not only recognizing the challenges Iowans face during the current pandemic, but also articulating a vision of opportunity for our future. We encourage the legislature to work with Governor Reynolds to remove regulatory barriers in our economy and shift the focus in education policy towards reforms that are in the best interest of families and students.”

“On behalf of citizens across the state, we will continue to work with the legislature to ensure government is not a roadblock to opportunity for Iowans. We believe a good place to start is by creating a better tax and regulatory environment so that Iowa’s economy can be put on an even greater trajectory.”

The grassroots group recently released their 2021 Legislative Agenda which seeks to provide lawmakers a roadmap of reforms that will remove barriers to opportunity and ensure a better tomorrow for every Iowan.
