Aurelia, Iowa — The first gavel of the 2019 session of the Iowa Legislature is only days away. We’ve been talking with area legislators about their priorities for this session.
We talked with Iowa District Three State Representative Dan Huseman recently, who represents all of Cherokee and O’Brien counties as well as eastern Plymouth County and part of eastern Sioux County, including the towns of Boyden and Hospers. Huseman tells us what’s important to him this session.
Huseman tells us about some issues that his constituents have told him are important to them.
Huseman says the Lewis & Clark Regional Water system is important too. He says they gave Lewis & Clark an advance during the previous session that Lewis & Clark will pay back when promised federal funds come in for their project. He says it’ll probably come through the Infrastructure Committee of which he is a member. He says he’ll be an advocate for the project. He says if the governor includes it in her budget, it’ll be easier to pass it, but they didn’t have too many objections last time, so he’s hopeful.
Huseman says if you have any questions or concerns, he would like to hear from you. He says serving is a privilege and he thanks people for their support.
