Senator Chuck Grassley will hold a town meeting in Buena Vista County this month as part of his continuing commitment to visit each of the state's 99 counties each year.
The local meeting is open to the public on Thursday, January 15 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center, Schaller Family Center for Women, 1525 West 5th Street in Storm Lake.
The town meetings are intended to be an informational session about the Medicare bill that recently passed Congress. Although, Grassley said that people with other questions or comments were welcome.
Grassley will also visit a Head Start program in Ida County, Dodgden Industries in Humboldt County and Charles City High School in Floyd County.
"People in Washington too easily lose touch with what is going on in the rest of the country. My county visits help me know what Iowans are thinking, and I take that common sense to Washington on their behalf," Grassley said.
Grassley said these meetings will be a good opportunity for him to explain what the new Medicare legislation will mean for Iowans. Grassley was the lead Senator negotiator of the bill.
