Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that he will be holding roundtables in Muscatine, Des Moines and Lee Counties to discuss the impact stalled legislation is having on Iowa’s rural economy. On his Investing in Iowa’s Rural Economy Tour, Loebsack will talk with farmers and other leaders in the rural community about the importance of passing the Farm Bill and the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). Both pieces of legislation, which are vital to Iowans, have been held up due to political games being played in Washington.

The weeklong series of roundtables will continue MONDAY, November 4th in Muscatine, West Burlington and Weaver. Loebsack will also make stops in Scott, Clinton, Jefferson, Wapello, Clarke, Appanoose and Monroe Counties. Additional locations and details will be announced throughout the week. Media are invited to attend.
