Rep. Megan Hess

Rep. Megan Hess (R-Spencer) and Jeff Smith (R-Okoboji) signed their individual oaths of office in the Iowa House chamber as the 85th General Assembly kicked off Monday at the Capitol.

The swearing in ceremony of all 100 state representatives begins a week full of ceremonies, including the condition of the state address by the governor, and the condition of the judiciary address by the Iowa Supreme Court chief justice. A full slate of committee work begins as well, as bills begin the process it takes to get them to the House floor for full debate.

The legislative session is slated to last 110 days, ending May 3.

Rep. Jeff Smith

During the session, Hess can be reached at megan.hess@legis.iowa.gov and Smith can be reached at jeff.smith@legis.iowa.gov.

Each can also be reached through the House switchboard at (515) 281-3221.
