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 ...

Loebsack Introduces Legislation to Provide Job Training for Veterans
Congressman Dave Loebsack today introduced legislation that builds on current public-private partnership efforts to ensure our veterans have the skills necessary to seamlessly enter the workforce after they return home. The Veterans Employment Training (VET) Act would provide grants to encourage local businesses and community colleges to offer our veterans the training needed to be successful in newly created jobs. Loebsack is a member of the Congressional Military Family Caucus and previously served on the House Armed Services Committee. “As a proud Marine parent I have long fought to make all veterans’ transition from the battle field to home life as easy as possible,” said Loebsack. “One of the biggest struggles facing many of our veterans when they come home is returning to the workforce. That is why I recently introduced the VET Act to help veterans get the training needed in order to have the skills to be able to work and compete in our 21st century workforce.” B
Loebsack Leads Legislation to Invest $45 Billion in Combating Opioid Epidemic
Congressman Dave Loebsack today introduced legislation to secure resources to directly combat the devastating opioid epidemic that has swept the nation. The Combating the Opioid Epidemic Act invests $45 billion into the prevention, detection, surveillance and treatment of opioid abuse. This legislation builds on the bipartisan efforts that were included in the 21st Century Cures Act to provide states with additional resources and a long-term investment in this fight. Loebsack was joined by Reps. Annie Kuster (NH), Carol Shea-Porter (NH) and Grace Napolitano (CA) to introduce this legislation and it is the companion to a bill recently introduced in the Senate by Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania.    “In my travels across Iowa and in meetings with law enforcement officers, I have heard firsthand about the need for additional local resources to help combat the devastating opioid epidemic that is sweeping across the nation,” said Loebsack. “Men and women, old and young, ri
Loebsack Legislation to Create National, Coordinated Response to Diabetes Signed into Law
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after President Trump signed into law S. 920, the National Clinical Care Commission Act. Loebsack and Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX) were the bipartisan cosponsors of the House version of this legislation, which passed by unanimous consent on a voice vote. This legislation will help improve and coordinate a national response to diabetes, and other metabolic and autoimmune diseases, by establishing a private-public Commission charged with making recommendations to streamline federal investments, as well as improving coordination and clinical care outcomes. November is recognized as American Diabetes Month to help raise awareness of the disease. Video of Loebsack discussing the legislation when it was passed by the House can be found here. “The signing of the National Clinical Care Commission Act will help bring together the best clinical endocrinologists, specialists and health care professionals in search of a cur
Loebsack Successful in Effort to Ensure Life-saving Medical Research Continues
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after he helped lead a bipartisan push to ensure the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) remained within the Department of Defense (DOD). As part of negotiations over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), provisions were struck from the bill that were originally included in the legislation and would have halted the research. Last month, Loebsack and a group of 179 lawmakers called for the CDMRP, which leads medical research into breast, lung, ovarian and pancreatic cancers, as well as finding cures for neurological diseases, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder, to remain as part of the DOD. The CDMRP, which was established in 1992 by Senator Tom Harkin, has led to many advancements and breakthroughs in cancer research in order to improve the lives of our troops, veterans and their families. “I am pleased to work with my colleagues in order to ensure the life-
