A Quad-Cities attorney and school board member has announced plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack in Iowa’s new 2nd District. John Archer, 39, senior legal counsel for John Deere and a member of the Pleasant Valley School Board, said Wednesday he has filed formed a campaign committee in the new 24-county district that includes Johnson County. More information can be found at www.ArcherforCongress.com. “It’s time for the United States to get serious about winning the future, and I’m ready to lead,” Archer said in his announcement. “We can no longer ...


Loebsack abandons Iowa farmers


John Archer called out Congressman Dave Loebsack for abandoning Iowa farmers in opposing the most recent free trade agreements with Columbia, Panama and South Korea. “Congressman Loebsack’s ‘no vote’ underscores his inability to understand how government can actually help our economy recover. America is first-rate at producing food and goods, but we need additional markets to enhance the opportunities to sell our goods, which will ultimately lead to job creation. Loebsack’s ‘no vote’ was a thumb in the eye to Iowa’s family farmer, and our ...


Loebsack sees long-term benefit of national flood center


Despite concerns about the federal budget, Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack said Monday in Iowa City he thinks federal funding for a proposed national flood center is important and could provide savings in the long term. The research of flood preparation and mitigation that would happen at a national flood center could lead to some prevention of flood damage to property and eventual savings by lessening the federal money needed to help people after flood disasters, and by creating efficiencies in government agency cooperation, Loebsack said. Climate change, increased development and changing ...

VIDEO: Loebsack Continues Fight for Cedar Rapids Flood Protection
Congressman Dave Loebsack today, at an Energy and Commerce Committee hearing, questioned Charles Alexander, the Director of Contingency Operations for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, about the delay in the construction of Cedar Rapids’ flood mitigation projects. During the hearing, Loebsack inquired about the Corps use of the benefit-cost-ratio that decides which projects will be built and places smaller communities, such as Cedar Rapids, at a disadvantage. Loebsack also called for Director Alexander to submit in writing the current status of the Cedar Rapids flood mitigation projects. Video of Loebsack’s exchange can be found here. “It was heartbreaking to see the devastation and loss of life that was left behind in the aftermath of the Hurricanes that affected the Gulf Coast region, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Seeing these images brought back memories of the damage Cedar Rapids suffered after the Floods of 2008. Iowans are also uniquely aware of how long the
Loebsack, House Biofuels Caucus Lead Call for Robust RFS Volumes
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after he, along with the House Biofuels Caucus, sent a letter to the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, calling for a robust amount of biofuels required to be used in the U.S. over the next year. Additionally, the letter addresses the recent EPA actions and reports indicating the agency’s intent to reduce advanced biofuel volumes and allow credits for ethanol exported overseas. Loebsack serves as a Co-Chair of the Biofuels Caucus. “Never in its history has the EPA reduced the amount of advanced biofuels required to be used in the U.S. under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Now is not the time to sit on our laurels. The EPA must expand the RFS and the use of biofuels, not slash it. Folks in Iowa know that the RFS works. It cuts down on our dependence of foreign oil, creates jobs here at home, is better for our environment, and lowers the price of gasoline at the pump. As co-chair o
VIDEO: Sec. Perry Refuses to Walk Back Administration’s Attack on Iowa Jobs
In response to questions from Congressman Dave Loebsack, Energy Secretary Rick Perry refused to answer whether he believes that the Administration would continue to support renewable energy, including wind and solar. In his appearance in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Loebsack asked Perry to definitively state on-the-record the Administration’s commitment to renewable energy, including support for wind and solar energy, after EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt recently said he would do away with these important credits. In his answer, Secretary Perry refused to simply answer yes or no in regards to the Administration’s commitment to renewable energy. Video of the exchange can be found here. “There is no hesitation among Iowans about the good jobs and boost to our rural economy that Iowa has seen because of our growing wind energy sector. I am disappointed that Secretary Perry did not unequivocally state that this Administration would continue to support renewab
Reps. Loebsack, Jenkins Send Letter to HHS on Direct Supervision
Recently, Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-D) and Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-R) sent a letter to Acting Secretary of Health and Human Services Don Wright to permanently prevent Medicare’s enforcement of unreasonable and inflexible direct supervision rules for outpatient therapy services at Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and other small, rural hospitals. The bipartisan letter was signed by 54 other members of the House of Representatives. “We must keep fighting to ensure all Iowans have access to high-quality health care no matter where they live,” said Loebsack. “Critical Access Hospitals play an important role in rural communities by providing access to primary, emergency, and acute care services. I have visited CAHs across the state that have struggled to meet the direct supervision requirement. I am proud to continue working with Rep. Jenkins on a bipartisan basis to permanently extend this rule to provide CAHs with certainty that they deserve.” “Critical Access
