WASHINGTON, DC- Iowa Representative Abby Finkenauer has been named to the House Small Business Committee. The newly-elected Democrat, from Iowa's First District, replaces Republican Congressman Steve King, of Iowa's 4th District, who was removed from his committee work earlier this month, after a controversial interview with the New York Times.
"I look forward to serving on the Small Businesses Committee to bring a voice to small businesses and entrepreneurs across Iowa,” said Rep. Finkenauer. “Whether we’re talking about businesses that have been in the same family for decades or new businesses just starting up, I’ll make sure they have the opportunities they need to grow and innovate. That means making sure they can attract top talent and investment so that when someone has a great idea, they can stay in Iowa or come to Iowa to see it through.”
