Iowa City, IA – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after he joined Governor Branstad and other state and local officials to tour flood affected areas and the flood preparations that are underway in Johnson County.
“I am pleased that the Governor and Lt. Governor took the time to come and see firsthand the preparation the folks in Johnson County and at the University of Iowa have put in to help protect the area from damaging flooding. While the area is not out of the woods yet, I am encouraged by the latest forecasts. The hard work of the Johnson County Emergency Management team, University of Iowa, and the scores of volunteers demonstrates just how strong this community really is.
“I am also pleased that despite the dysfunction and partisan bickering that is all too common in Washington; Iowans can rise above it in a time of need. I am proud to be a part of that work and will coordinate with the Governor, Army Corps of Engineers, the University, and local officials as the threat of flooding continues.”###
