FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 21st, 2011 (DES MOINES, IOWA) – Iowa voters want state legislators to focus on rebuilding our local economy and creating jobs. A recently released poll from Anzalone Listz Research shows nearly half of Iowa voters are dissatisfied with the priorities the state legislature focused on this past 2011 session.
“Iowans elected our state leaders to improve our economy and create jobs to get our family members, friends, and neighbors back to work,” said Planned Parenthood of the Heartland CEO and President Jill June.
“This session, more than ever, Iowans are relying on our legislators to tackle the issues that matter most.”
Following jobs and the economy, important issues to voters were education, the budget and taxes.
Only 2 percent of Iowa voters said social issues should be the top priority.
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has served women and men of all ages in the Heartland since the 1930s. Today the agency offers a full range of quality reproductive health care services to residents in Nebraska and Iowa through twenty-eight health centers and Education Resource Centers located in Des Moines, Lincoln and Omaha.
