(Des Moines, IA) Iowa Senate Republicans selected State Senator Bill Dix (R-Shell Rock) as the incoming Majority Leader of the Iowa Senate for the 87th General Assembly.

“Thank you to my friends and fellow Republican Senators for their continued trust in my leadership. It is truly a humbling experience to receive their unanimous support for Majority Leader of the Iowa Senate. On Tuesday Iowans voted for big, bold change at both the state and federal levels. My commitment to my colleagues, and to all Iowans, is, I accept this mandate and will move Iowa forward to improve career opportunities, reduce the size and reach of state government and make sure Iowans keep more of their hard earned money.” Dix said in a released statement.
