We are fortunate to have Mike Gronstal represent us, our students, our schools and our profession. In the current political climate it is vital that you understand that we need YOU. Your time, your talent, and--eventually--your treasure will be needed to make sure that we reverse the trend of legislators who are willing to sell out our children for corporate tax cuts.

Mike Gronstal on Health Care

No Iowan should be without health care. That's why we must continue to ensure that every Iowan has access to affordable, quality health insurance. Together, we passed legislation allowing small businesses to pool resources to provide health insurance for their workers, expanded the number of children covered under the Hawk-I program, and continued to work to make Iowa the first state in the Union to be able say we have provided access to affordable coverage for every child in Iowa.
