Bobby Kaufmann, Iowa House District 73, consistently presents himself as a moderate Republican.

“Just the fact that I have a great relationship with all the Democrats in the Johnson County delegation, I think that has been by far my biggest accomplishment.” (Iowa City Press Citizen, 5/12/16).

Here are four bills Rep. Kaufmann recently voted for in the current legislative session:

HHF 517, adding ‘stand your ground’ to Iowa’s gun laws

HF 291, gutting Iowa workers’ collective bargaining rights

HF 516, protecting Iowa from non-existent voter fraud

SF 166, allocating inadequate state aid to public schools

Two Democrats voted for the first one; no Democrats voted for the other three.
