WASHINGTON – A group of U.S. Senators tomorrow will introduce a common-sense proposal aimed at providing legal certainty for undocumented children brought to the United States by their parents and preventing others from falling into the same legal limbo in the future.

Throughout the month of February, we recognize the achievements of remarkable African American men and women, including many great leaders here in Iowa. This month provides an important opportunity to commemorate the contributions made to our country by these brave men and women, and to rededicate ourselves to making our nation more just and equal for everyone.

WASHINGTON – In a letter to the Committee’s Ranking Minority Member today, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley outlined the process for preparing for the release of Committee transcripts of interviews with witnesses to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, so that the American people know what the Committee knows in preparation for any public hearings with those witnesses.

Grassley also made the following statement:

SPRINGFIELD – The Abraham Lincoln Association will install Southern California Lincoln enthusiast Bob Willard as the organization's new President for a two-year term during the annual Abraham Lincoln Association (ALA) Symposium Banquet on Monday, February 12 in Springfield. Willard will succeed Springfield's Kathryn Harris, who will complete her two-year term that evening.

Children succeed when families do. Knowing this, Spring Forward is thrilled to partner with QC Marriage and Family Counseling to offer play groups at our Family Literacy Program.


Family Counselor Xochi Pannell and Parent Liason Lisa Viane lead the playgroups where families read, sing songs, and do arts and crafts together.
