Let us know who else voted for these bad bills. What other Republicans running would fall in line and vote for this kind of stuff?

Iowa Senate Democrats
The leader of the majority party in the Iowa Senate decides which bills are debated in the Iowa Senate. After the resignation of Senate Leader Bill Dix, Senator Jack Whitver was elected Senate Majority Leader by the Republican members of the Iowa Senate.

Under his leadership, Iowa’s Senate Republicans cut our state universities, failed to protect abused children, increased Iowa energy costs, reduced safety by ended inspections of thousands of boilers, and encouraged drunk driving by limiting the liability of bar owners.

Details on bills mentioned in video:

SF 2117 includes the 2018 Republican mid-year budget cut to the University of Iowa and Iowa State.

SF 2418 is the 2018 Department of Human Services budget. It failed restore the 2017 Republican budget cuts to Iowa child protective workers. That cut increased caseloads even those it is clear Iowa must do more to protect children at risk of abuse.

SF 2311 will result in substantially higher utility bills for Iowa families and businesses. It gutted many of the policies that gave Iowa some of the lowest energy rates in the nation. It eliminated energy efficiency and rebate programs had saved Iowa consumers billions of dollars, avoided the need to build costly new power plants, attracted businesses looking for low electric rates and created thousands of Iowa jobs.

HF 2297 ended safety inspections of more than 7,000 boilers. Depending on the size of the boiler, affected locations include schools, colleges, fitness centers, casinos, hospitals, and nursing homes.

SF 2169 sharply reduced the liability of bar owners and others for knowingly serving alcohol to people who are intoxicated and who go on to cause damages, injuries, and death.

SF 2117 includes the 2018 Republican mid-year cut to DMACC and Iowa’s other community colleges.
