On his campaign website, Dix outlines these issues as his main concerns: 
- Iowa taxpayers - Bill Dix believes taxpayers pay enough in taxes and we deserve to see how these dollars are collected and spent by government. An open and transparent government will help all of us to analyze and curb accounting games within the state budget.
- Iowa agriculture - Bill Dix is a lifelong farmer and understands agriculature is the constant driving force to the Iowa economy. We must support our agricultural communities and encourage private investments to expand the markets.
- Iowa business - Bill Dix will work to remove regulations which cripple our businesses. We must also look for the long term approach to bring more jobs to Iowa, not more quick-fix government programs.
- Iowa education - Bill Dix believes we must support effective educators, increase access to educational opportunities, and leave individual school decisions at the local level.
