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 ...

Loebsack Introduces “Never Again” Legislation to Address Veteran Suicide Epidemic
Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02) today introduced bipartisan legislation along with Congressman Steve Stivers (OH-15) to ensure no veteran seeking in-patient psychiatric care at a Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center is ever denied such care again. Earlier this summer, Sgt. Brandon Ketchum, a veteran from Davenport, Iowa, was turned away from a VA facility after seeking psychiatric help. After being denied care, he tragically took his own life. Sgt. Ketchum’s tragic death reinforced the need for a change at the VA to ensure any veteran who is suffering from a mental health issue gets the treatment they need and deserve. Simply put, under the Never Again Act, if a veteran asks for mental health care from the VA, they will get it. “I introduced the Never Again Act to ensure that no veteran in crisis is ever turned away again. This legislation would require VA Medical Centers to provide psychiatric care for any veteran that asks for it,” said Loebsack. “After Sgt. Ketchum’s
Loebsack: VA Response Surrounding Veteran’s Suicide is Lacking; Leads Fight for More Action to Protect Veterans
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement after receiving a response to his questions from Judith Johnson-Mekota, the Director of Iowa City VA Health Care System (ICVAHCS). On July 12th, Loebsack wrote to Director Johnson-Mekota seeking answers in regards to the circumstances surrounding the suicide of Sgt. Brandon Ketchum on July 8th, a day after he reportedly sought care at the ICVAHCS. In light of this tragedy, Loebsack is drafting legislation to ensure all veterans who seek treatment receive the care they need and deserve. “The VA’s response to my questions is lacking, to say the least. I understand and respect the need for privacy and a full and thorough investigation of the events leading up to Sgt. Ketchum taking his own life, but this response fails to address the greater issue of what needs to be done to ensure this never happens again. The VA must ensure any veteran who seeks treatment gets the care they need and deserve,” said Loebsack. Loebsack
Loebsack, Bustos, Tonko, Gibson Introduce Legislation to Reauthorize Leasing Authority at Arsenals
Representatives Dave Loebsack (IA-02), Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Paul Tonko (NY-20) and Chris Gibson (NY-19) today introduced legislation that will reauthorize the leasing authority at Department of Defense arsenals for unused office space to outside tenants. In 2012, arsenals lost their leasing authority. This legislation, the Arsenal Installation Reutilization Authority, authorizes arsenals to be able to approve 25 year leases until September of 2019, which will help produce jobs and generate income for arsenals until 2044. Identical legislation was recently introduced in the Senate. “The Rock Island Arsenal is vital to the Quad Cities economy and we must continue to work together to secure and strengthen its future. I am pleased to introduce this legislation in the House with Congresswoman Bustos to help the arsenal remain competitive,” said Loebsack. “This legislation builds on the work I have done to best position the Rock Island Arsenal and its critical role in equipping ou
Obama Signs Loebsack’s ‘Rural Health Care Connectivity Act’ into Law
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after legislation he helped introduce, the Rural Health Care Connectivity Act, was signed into law this week by President Obama. The bipartisan legislation was included as part of a larger bill, H.R. 2576, the TSCA Modernization Act. Specifically, Loebsack’s bill makes skilled nursing facilities eligible to receive funds through the Universal Service Fund’s Rural Healthcare Program. This is a $400 million program that provides discounts for telecommunications services so that rural healthcare providers pay comparable rates to their urban counterparts, and helps expand healthcare provider access to broadband services. “Access to robust broadband internet in skilled nursing facilities, no matter where they are located, is necessary for both the folks who live there, and for the doctors to more effectively treat patients. After having visited many high skilled nursing facilities across the district, I’ve gotten
