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.
