The Iowa Prayer Caucus
A major highlight this week was when 41 legislators and the Lt. Governor signed the “Iowa Prayer Proclamation” on Tuesday.
Representatives Phyllis Thede and Joel Fry are co-chairs of the Iowa Prayer Caucus. They have been meeting in prayer each Tuesday Noon – 1 PM in Room 19 of the Capitol, with several other legislators and guests in attendance. We salute Representatives Fry and Thede for their faithful leadership in bringing a bipartisan prayer effort to the Iowa Capitol.
At the prayer rally Tuesday, they were accompanied by Lea Carawan from the National Prayer Caucus. It was an inspiring event and brought hope to all who attended.

Senator Sinclair sponsored Senate Amendment 3172 on the Human Services Budget bill. Her fellow Republicans joined her as co-sponsors. Their Amendment was an effort to redirect tax dollars from abortion providers to health care providers that provide comprehensive health care for women. The amendment lost on a vote of 23 to 24 with all Republican votes plus one Democrat (Joe Seng from Davenport).
