Congresswoman Hinson Talks About Plan Now That House Speaker Is In Place

Washington DC — Iowa Congresswoman Ashley Hinson says she is happy to see a new House Speaker elected to end what she calls “the chaos and dysfunction over the past few weeks.”

Hinson says new House Speaker Mike Johnson of Louisiana has a plan in place to address the key issues like getting the budget done to avoid a government shutdown.

The Republican from Marion represents Iowa’s Second District, and says her party had a lot of conversations in the last couple of weeks about the path forward and what that looks like.

Hinson says she hopes to get an updated timeline for the Farm bill soon.
The other three members of the Iowa House delegation voted with Hinson for the new speaker and issued statements after the vote. First District Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks says Johnson “is a humble servant leader that I trust to carefully guide our Republican Conference.”

Third district Representative Zach Nunn says with the speaker vote over it’s time to double down on the necessary work to address the most pressing needs facing our country: reining in government spending, protecting Medicare and Social Security, passing a Farm Bill.
Fourth District Representative Randy Feenstra says he has “full confidence that, under Speaker Johnson, we will continue to uphold our Commitment to America and deliver for our families, farmers, main street businesses, and rural communities.”
