Vision for Iowa

This is a time to chart Iowa's path for the next ten years. To stand together and enact a comprehensive agenda that invests in Iowa, returns money to taxpayers, preserves our land and water, strengthens our schools and looks after the health and wellbeing of our people. And gives every Iowan the opportunity to succeed.

    Preparing a Future Ready Iowa

    Iowa’s greatest opportunity for economic growth is to build a workforce that’s nimble, highly skilled and filled with lifelong learners. Today, we are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers across every region of our state and all types of industries — from manufacturing and skilled trades, to health care and information technology.

    Supporting Strong & Healthy Families

    Iowa is not immune from the health care challenges occurring nationally. Rising costs and a shortage of healthcare providers makes access to services more challenging in some areas of our state, especially rural communities. Health care the way it exists today may not be sustainable in some areas.

    Empowering Rural Iowa

    Rural Iowa is the heart and soul of who we are as a state and a people. Our unwavering support of Iowa’s farm families and continued investment in our small towns will ensure opportunity abounds in every rural community.

    Economic Recovery

    Iowa’s economic recovery plan is about more than yesterday’s goals. It’s a new opportunity to build a better Iowa, elevate how we do business, modernize how we work and learn, and further improve our quality of life.
