Iowa House Republicans did not help their own re-election efforts today when Speaker Kraig Paulsen removed two members of his own caucus from the Ways and Means Committee to advance the proposed 10-cent gas tax increase bill. Voters across the state, outraged by the move, have been scrambling to get their voices heard.
Timing may have been on their side.
Friday is not a working day in the General Assembly. It is a traveling day for legislators to get back to their districts, or to meet with constituents. And, the House Republican Caucus posts the list of members’ constituent forums each week. You can see the schedule for tomorrow and Saturday’s forums by clicking here.
