UPDATE ON BILL DISMANTLING DES MOINES WATER WORKS
Feel free to watch the video below.
I’m working hard to defeat the bill in the Iowa Senate and will continue to advocate for my constituents and their concerns for this bill.
The legislation introduced by an Iowa House Republican from rural Iowa to dismantle Des Moines Water Works is still alive at the Statehouse. Earlier this week, the majority of the Des Moines City Council voted in favor of the legislation, supporting a bill that puts Des Moines and surrounding communities’ clean drinking water at risk. Clean, safe, affordable and dependable water is important for residents of Des Moines. That’s what I’ve heard. Republicans, Democrats, and from every part of the city and even outside central Iowa have reached out to me expressing their disapproval of this legislation. Last Sunday, I held a public forum at the State Historical Building and invited guest speaker Bill Stowe, CEO and general manager of the Des Moines Water Works. Stowe was able to answer many questions from attendees concerned about their drinking water and what this bill could do to their daily lives.
