Effectively Managed the State Budget
- Excerpt: "Do not spend more money than the state takes in."
Created Certainty for Iowa Taxpayers and Employers
- Excerpt: "With the constant overreach, intrusion and insecurity made by the federal government, we were keenly aware of the challenges facing Iowa taxpayers and employers and worked to lessen the burdens they face at the state level."
Created Certainty for Iowa families
- Excerpt: "House Republicans focused this session on tearing down obstacles for hardworking middle class families. We worked to find ways to free Iowans from the harassment of government intrusion into their lives and instead simply allow them to raise their families and enjoy their communities."
Expanded Opportunities for Iowa’s Veterans
- Excerpt: "We recognized Iowa’s veterans are some of the most skilled and highly-trained men and women in the country. In an effort to honor those who are already in Iowa and encourage more to come here and enrich our communities and work for Iowa companies, I along with other veterans led the way in passing the Home Base Iowa Act. This package of legislation is designed to attract veterans back to Iowa and ensure they have the opportunities they need to be successful when they return."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
