Iowa Future Fund Launches Ads Educating Public About Labor Law Proposals
Des Moines, IA – Today, the Iowa Future Fund launched radio ads on stations across Iowa.
While the “hardest working Governor in America” vacationed in Florida, liberals in the Iowa House of Representatives gutted the decision making authority of school boards, city councils and the county boards of supervisors to control the level of property taxes by passing devastating revisions to Iowa’s labor laws.
The ad launched by the Iowa Future Fund was created to generate awareness for and educate Iowans on what will happen to Iowa’s right to work and collective bargaining laws if these pending pieces of legislation are passed into law. (Script attached)
Iowa Future Fund spokesman David Kochel said, “Chet Culver and the liberals in the legislature need to come out from the dark to have a fair and open debate on this issue. This is much too important of an issue to rush through the legislature without a fair and open discussion of the issues. I encourage all Iowans to call their senator and express their concern about this issue.”

The ad will begin running immediately in the districts of the following Iowa Senators:
The Iowa Future Fund operates as a 501(c)(4) organization, designed to further the common good and general welfare of the citizens of the United States by educating the citizens of Iowa about public policy issues affecting the State of Iowa.
