“There is a great deal of frustration that Washington simply isn’t getting its work done, and I couldn’t agree more. Congress has a lot of work to do – from tax reform, to health care, to the Farm Bill, to passing measures that keep our nation safe and secure. I look forward to taking the input I’ve received from folks all across our state and translating it into action in Washington.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) issued the following statement after completing her third annual 99 county tour across the State of Iowa:

“Each stop – whether it’s a town meeting, a roundtable discussion, or visit to a local business or school – gives me a tremendous opportunity to hear from Iowans first-hand. Maintaining open lines of communication allows us to better identify problems together and find common sense solutions to those issues facing Iowans.
