A Look Ahead at 2022 and the Iowa Legislature

January 14, 2022 | Improving Competitiveness Jack Hasken, Jackson Mfg, Inc.,

One of the items to which ABI is looking towards is the 2022 session of the Iowa General Assembly. This edition of Business Record Iowa highlights the upcoming session and issues that will be considered by the Iowa Legislature this year.

At Jackson Mfg. (and at other ABI companies), our people make some of the highest quality products in the world. We share that story with elected officials at every opportunity. We know our legislators and we invite them into our plant often. We appreciate their public service and we follow their votes closely.

Not just during session, but all year long, one great resource for objective, nonpartisan information about the candidates and issues is found at IAVOTES.com. IAVOTES.com is ABI's award-winning voter resource and issues website. Go to IAVOTES.com to find information about candidates, see candidate videos, and learn about issues.

By the time you read this, ABI will have held its second largest annual event, the Association’s annual Legislative Briefing and Reception. Over 500 Iowa business people and elected officials will have participated. The largest annual event is the annual conference. The 2022 ABI Taking Care of Business Conference will be held in Dubuque June 14-16. See you there!

Finally, as the New Year begins, I would note that ABI enjoyed a strong 2021. Despite challenges faced by members and the association related to the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues, ABI ended the year stronger than ever. That is thanks to your support and we never take that support for granted. Thank you all very much!
