DES MOINES, IOWA (March 3, 2023) — Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement in response to her Government Alignment bill passing the Iowa House State Government Committee:

“State government should be efficient and effective to best serve the needs of Iowans. Right now, we have a state government that is difficult to navigate and bloated — hindering Iowans’ and our states’ growth. This legislation will streamline services, create a clearer path to new opportunities, and save hundreds of millions of dollars for taxpayers. I look forward to seeing this bill pass both chambers soon.”
