Ahead of the 2024 Legislative Session, Representative Jeff Shipley (R-Fairfield) has been added to the Iowa House Labor and Workforce Committee.
“I’m ready to get to work on the Labor and Workforce committee this session,” Shipley said. “The workforce crisis is one of the most important issues facing our state and local economy. Iowa must address immediate workforce needs while also fixing this generational problem for the long term. Our overall success depends on growing our population and providing a high quality of life for young families. I’m looking forward to digging into these important topics and building consensus on solutions to move Iowa forward.”
In addition to his new role on Labor and Workforce, Shipley also serves on the Public Safety Committee and the Justice Systems budget subcommittee. He also serves as Vice Chairman of the Government Oversight Committee. This past summer, Shipley was also added to the State Children’s Behavioral Health Systems Board.
Rep. Shipley has also stated student discipline and children’s mental health to be a legislative priority, along with increasing salaries for teachers and Department of Corrections employees.
The 2024 Legislative Session begins on January 8th, 2024. You can send Rep. Shipley your 2024 Iowa Legislative priorities at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text 319 432 3108.
