DES MOINES – Today, Gov. Reynolds released the following statement in response to the Iowa Senate passing her Government Alignment bill:  

“Serving the needs of Iowans efficiently and effectively is state government’s primary responsibility, and Iowans rightfully expect nothing less. Government alignment proposes the type of commonsense, fiscally responsible change that will improve how the executive branch works together, elevate services for Iowans, and save taxpayers a projected $215 million over the next four years. For too long politicians have only promised to reduce the size and cost of government, but today the Iowa Senate took an important step forward to making it a reality. I look forward to getting this bill across the finish line in the House and to my desk.”
