Quote: “And today I am calling on the legislature to pass legislation to reduce the number of opioids prescribed in Iowa.”
For 93 years the government has been trying to regulate opioids. What was that famous quote about defining insanity?

Once it is understood that we must be responsible we will be.
Quote: “I also want to increase our support for apprenticeships, that’s why I have included an additional $1 million in my budget to expand Iowa’s current apprenticeship program to help more small- and mid-sized employers offer these life-changing opportunities.”
Wow. increased government spending from a Republican. Seems we individual citizens just can’t do anything without the element of theft.
