STATEMENT FROM HOUSE DEMOCRATIC LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY ON VOTE TO END COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

“Like Wisconsin, Republicans in Iowa will stop at nothing to take away rights from police officers, fire fighters, state troopers, teachers, correctional officers and other hard-working Iowans. This bill to end collective bargaining is worse than the bill approved in Wisconsin earlier today.

Democrats will keep fighting for Iowans who keep us safe, teach our children, keep our streets clear, or protect kids in abusive homes.  The Republican assault on Iowa’s middle class must end.”
