Senator Amy Sinclair: Busy First Week

Amy-Sinclair-2 [1]

Amy Sinclair, senator for Iowa District 14, tells KNIA KRLS News that it’s been a very busy first week in the legislature, with the Governor’s condition of the state address, and filing bills and approving resolutions. She says last year was a busy year, passing property tax reform and education reform, and passing the governor’s healthy Iowa plan that just received the federal waiver. She says there will be work to be done fine-tuning those issues, and important to her is making sure the education reform is being properly implemented, particularly with hours versus days piece of legislation. She also says veterans initiative is huge this year; and says she’d love to draw veterans to Iowa and stop taxation on military retirement benefits.
