DES MOINES -- Recently, Senate Republicans met at the Capitol and elected leadership for the 85th General Assembly, which will convene on January 14, 2013. Senator Randy Feenstra (R-Hull) was elected as a Senate Republican Assistant Leader.
Feenstra, recently reelected, was first elected to the Iowa Legislature in 2008, and served on the Ways and Means, State Government, Commerce, and Education Committees.
"Senate Republicans want to reign in government, help Iowans keep more of their hard-earned dollars and put Iowans back to work. I know we can work to accomplish this during the 2013 Legislative Session," said Feenstra.
Senator Rick Bertrand (Sioux City) will serve as the Senate Republican Whip while Senators Roby Smith (Davenport), Joni Ernst (Red Oak), Tim Kapucian (Keystone), and David Johnson (Ocheyedan) were elected as Assistant Leaders.
