McKinley Comments on Democrats’ Special Session Statements

Senate Republican Leader Paul McKinley (R-Chariton) responded to Senate Democrats calls for a special session by saying that if they want an expensive special session, the agenda must include substantial action to help bring more jobs to Iowa instead of continuing their obstruction of pro-jobs legislation:

“Senate Democrats spent the last six months during the third longest session in history obstructing badly needed jobs legislation and pro-growth policies and suddenly now want an expensive special session?

If a special session were to occur, the agenda will have to include passing comprehensive property tax reform for all classes of property, rule and regulatory reform to remove some of the onerous barriers job creators are facing and putting in place the kinds of real education reforms that are needed give our kids the tools they need to succeed in this competitive global economy.”
