Chuck Hurley, the president of Iowa Family Policy Center which is now under the parent organization the Family Leader outlined their priorities in the next couple of years.

First he mentioned 2012 where they hope to make an impact with a possible endorsement and will look to candidates who support social conservative issues and godly principles.

Second, they will focus on the judicial selection process for the three slots now open on the Iowa Supreme Court.  They will shine a light on the process and expect that the process is not rushed in order to allow outgoing Governor Chet Culver to make the picks.  Hurley also encouraged the remaining four justices to resign in order to save the state from another costly retention election since they would have been ousted as well if they were on the ballot.

Third with the legislature, Hurley announced they are going to pursue late term abortion legislation, and they will push a vote to re-pass Iowa’s Defense of Marriage Act with language to limit the courts’ jurisdiction over the law.
