WASHINGTON – Staff members for Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) will hold traveling office hours in seven counties across Iowa next week. Iowans are invited to stop by during the scheduled hours to seek assistance or share concerns regarding agriculture-specific matters and federal policy. Ernst and Grassley are represented by their regional directors and will not be in attendance.

Ernst’s and Grassley’s state offices also regularly help constituents contact federal agencies to resolve problems with Social Security payments, military service matters, immigration cases and other issues.

“Every year I complete my 99 County Tour to hear directly from Iowans from across the state and to be as accessible as possible,” Ernst said. “But, when I can’t be there, members of my team help fill the gap. I’m glad to announce that staff from my office, and Senator Grassley’s, are holding these traveling office hours across the state to listen to and hear directly from our farmers and agriculture community members.”

“My top priority is serving the people of Iowa. Traveling office hours is one way of doing that. My staff in Iowa act as my eyes and ears while I’m in Washington and it’s important that I hear regularly from farmers and those working in the agriculture industry. My staff helps Iowans with issues they may have with the federal government and I hope anyone experiencing problems will use this resource,” Grassley said.
