I have always highlighted to my colleagues Iowa’s leadership in renewable energy. Last year the American Clean Power Association did a study and reported that 57.6% of Iowa’s electricity is created by renewable sources, but what is even more impressive is that no other state had above 50%.

I appreciate the Representatives emphasis of Iowa's lead in renewable energy generation. Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act that was recently signed, we can continue to grow the amount of solar energy in our state!

It's very confusing though that she states we need energy independence but then promotes an oil pipeline from Canada. That doesn't make any sense.
