Friends of School Choice -
ESA legislation has taken a major step forward in the final weeks of this legislative session. It's critical that lawmakers, particularly those on this subcommittee, hear from you before voting on this bill.
As many of you know, House File 2284 would create a pilot program for ESAs in the state of Iowa. This is an important step toward building support for ESAs by showing the tremendous potential they have to empower parents and level the playing field when it comes to educational choice.
HF 2284 advanced out of subcommittee and will now be up for a vote in the full House Appropriations Committee.
Your Representative needs to hear your voice before considering this bill. Please take a minute to send them a message about why Iowa needs to implement ESAs and continue to make progress on ensuring educational choice for all families.  

You may initially see two messages below.  Once you provide your residence address, the appropriate message will be provided.  (One that corresponds with whether or not your Representative serves on the House Appropriations Committee.)

Thank you for taking the time to act in support of choice in education!
