Rep. Collins Announces Reelection Bid

Today, Rep. Taylor Collins filed for re-election to Iowa House District 95, encompassing parts of Des Moines, Henry, and Muscatine counties, and all of Louisa county.

“Since being sworn in last January I’ve kept my promise to be a strong, conservative voice for Southeast Iowa at the state capitol,” said Rep. Collins. “I’m proud to stand on my record as a fiscal watchdog, furthering tax cuts for my constituents, and keeping bureaucrats in state government on watch. I’ll continue my commitment to prioritize education over indoctrination and protecting the innocent life of the unborn.”

Rep. Collins was elected to the Iowa House in November 2022 and, shortly after, was appointed to serve as Vice-Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, the committee charged with crafting the state’s $8 billion budget. Rep. Collins also serves on the Judiciary, State Government, and Education policy committees, and on the Education Appropriations Subcommittee.

“Despite the challenges our country is facing, due to incompetent leadership in Washington D.C., Iowa has charted a common sense course and Iowans are better off because of it,” said Rep. Collins. “I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished over the last year, but more work remains in order to ensure Iowa is the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”

Speaker of the House Pat Grassley (R-New Hartford) praised Collins’s work in the House.

“In just his first term in the Legislature, Rep. Collins has become a valued member of the House Republican Caucus,” said Speaker Grassley. “He has stepped up as Vice Chair of the Appropriations committee to ensure that Iowa’s budget funds the priorities Iowans value and trims the fat. Rep. Collins has proven to be a committed representative for his district and I look forward to continuing to work with him in the Statehouse.”

Before his election to the legislature, Rep. Collins previously served in state government as a Policy Advisor to Governor Kim Reynolds and Senior Advisor to Lt. Governor Adam Gregg. Outside of the legislative session, Rep. Collins manages his family’s farm operation, with some acreage dating back over 150 years. Rep. Collins is a proud member of the Iowa Farm Bureau.

Rep. Collins holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Iowa State University, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Drake University, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Drake University. Rep. Collins, and his wife Savannah, reside in Mediapolis.
