Attorney to challenge Loebsack in new 2nd District


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 ...

Loebsack Statement on EPA’s 2017 RFS Obligations
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its final Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) obligations for 2017. Loebsack, who serves as the co-chair of the House Biofuels Caucus, has led the fight for a strong RFS and highlighted its importance to Iowa. “Today’s announcement is good news for Iowa’s farmers, rural communities and consumers. I am pleased the EPA followed the mandate set for them by Congress to ensure ethanol and biofuels are a source of fuel for the future, while decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. But our work is not done. I will continue to push the EPA to increase the level of bio-diesel and advanced biofuels to what was mandated. I will also continue to fight to create greater access to biofuels at local gas stations across the country.”
Loebsack’s Efforts to Expedite Flood Protections in Cedar Rapids Pass House
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after the House passed the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (S. 216), which included provisions to expedite the construction of flood protection measures in Cedar Rapids, among other water infrastructure projects. The Cedar Rapids flood control measures were previously authorized, but have not yet been built. Additionally, this legislation authorizes Corps of Engineers funding for improvements to ports, waterways and projects tied to flood protection, drinking water, dams and levees, and environmental restoration. “I am pleased that the bill includes provisions to expedite the much needed flood protection measures to keep homes, businesses and communities safe in Cedar Rapids. The Floods of 2008 devastated much of downtown Cedar Rapids, which still does not have adequate protection to keep them safe from future flooding. “The legislation also includes projects that will create jobs and have
Loebsack, Bustos and Duckworth Applaud Passage of the National Defense Authorization Act
Today, Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02), Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) and Senator-Elect Tammy Duckworth voted in favor and applauded the passage of the Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This was the final House passage of the bill, which will now go to the Senate for approval before the President can sign it into law. Representatives Bustos and Loebsack worked with Duckworth, who led this successful effort through the House Armed Services Committee, to include several provisions that will help ensure the long-term success of the Rock Island Arsenal and the more than 6,000 hard working men and women who work on Arsenal Island. “The Rock Island Arsenal not only supports the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, but also plays a critical role in the Quad Cities economy. I am proud to continue my work with Congresswomen Bustos and Duckworth to ensure the Arsenal has the resources it needs to remain strong,” said Congressman Loebsack. “The Arsena
Loebsack Calls on CMS to Rescind Iowa’s Medicaid Waiver
Congressman Dave Loebsack today called on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency responsible for granting the State of Iowa the waiver to privatize its Medicaid program, to rescind the waiver. A report published today by the Des Moines Register shows that payment shortages have created a 'catastrophic experience' for the program’s private managers. This new report comes on top of continued complaints from patients about access to services and providers about delayed reimbursements.   A separate report issued today by the nonpartisan Iowa Legislative Services Agency, shows that the state’s Medicaid program faces a $14.5 million shortfall for FY2017 and a $109 million shortfall in FY2018. “Since the plan to privatize Medicaid in Iowa was announced, I have been wary of this proposal. Nearly 600,000 of our state’s most vulnerable populations, including low-income families, children, seniors and individuals with disabilities rely on Med
