Nichols Representing Iowa on National Board

A Marion County Supervisor was elected to represent Iowa on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, or NRECA, Board. Sam Nichols tells KNIA/KRLS News he recently got back from Washington D.C., where he met with legislators and attended NRECA meetings. Nichols says one of the big issues they’re concerned about is the recently-unveiled federal cap and trade bills from the House and Senate, and how the NRECA can best advise legislators what they see as the most favorable options for Iowa cooperatives. Nichols is set to go back to Washington D.C. in December for an orientation meeting and to meet staff.
