Rep. Curt Hanson joins House Rural Caucus
DES MOINES — State Rep. Curt Hanson of Fairfield has joined the House Rural Caucus for the 2013 session with fellow rural legislators.
“In our small towns and rural communities, there are many unique challenges, and we hope to ensure these communities will have a strong voice,” said Hanson.
“I look forward to listening to the concerns of Iowans in rural areas across Iowa and working to improve their quality of life.”
The Rural Caucus was created because House Democrats recognized the importance of Iowa’s rural economy and wanted to give legislators an opportunity to work together on issues like boosting rural job creation, meeting Iowa’s rural infrastructure needs, and guaranteeing adequate resources for rural schools.
The caucus meets regularly during session to share ideas, draft legislation, and review bills that have an impact on rural Iowa.
