Iowa Democratic leaders and progressive groups spoke at the Iowa Capitol Tuesday morning ahead of Governor Kim Reynolds' Condition of the State address.
They dubbed their speeches "The People's Condition of the State."
Iowa House Minority Leader Jennifer Konfrst (D-Windsor Heights), State Sen. Pam Jochum (D-Dubuque), and representatives from Planned Parenthood, the Iowa Federation of Labor, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, and Progress Iowa all spoke.
Speakers Tuesday morning pushed back on the possible 'school choice' bill that Reynolds and Republicans are trying to pass. Reynolds appeared in a new six-figure ad campaign funded by a conservative group pushing for the plan, which would give public school funding to private school vouchers for some Iowa kids.
The speakers also spoke out in favor of abortion access for Iowans and against tax cut plans floated by some Republicans this session.
