Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement in response to the U.S. District Court dismissing the class action lawsuit regarding the canceling of federal pandemic assistance: 

β€œDuring the pandemic, the federal government attempted to pay able-bodied people to stay home instead of seeking employment to keep our economy on track. Republican governors around the country stood up to protect the livelihoods of our citizens, getting people back to work when it was desperately needed. In Iowa, we value hard work and recognize the dignity a good job can bring. I appreciate the court’s decision.”
