Democrats have a new leader in the Iowa House for the 2022 legislative session.
After last year’s session, House District 52 State Representative Todd Prichard (D) of Charles City decided to step aside as House Minority Leader. Prichard says that role is in good hands with House District 43 Representative Jennifer Konfrst (D) of Des Moines.
Both Prichard and District 26 State Senator Waylon Brown ( R ) of Osage say tax cuts will be a huge topic for lawmakers this session. Brown adds that workforce shortages are also high on the priority list.
The 89th General Assembly started Monday and is scheduled to run through April 19th.
