This week House Speaker Kraig Paulsen appointed Rep. Gary Worthan (R- Storm Lake) chair of the House Justice System Appropriations Subcommittee.
Worthan is a fourth-generation family farmer. He was elected in November to his fourth term in the Iowa House.
"I am committed to crafting balanced budgets that spend less than the state takes in to create certainty for Iowa taxpayers and employers," said Worthan.
