Kim Reynolds, Governor of Iowa, Approves New Mental Health Reform Legislation

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds visited Cedar Rapids to attend the Iowa Utility Association’s DEV24 conference at the Double Tree Hotel and Convention Center. During her visit, she signed a law to overhaul Iowa’s mental health system, which will now include substance abuse services and consolidate the mental health regions from 32 to 7 districts.

After addressing the conference attendees, Governor Reynolds planned to sign two more bills later in the week. One of the bills focuses on prohibiting misleading food labels on certain products, while the other bill is designed to protect producers by reinstating the livestock capital gains deduction.

These legislative actions demonstrate Governor Reynolds’ commitment to improving access to mental health care and substance abuse treatment for Iowans, supporting local producers, and ensuring consumer protection in Iowa. The governor’s dedication to these issues highlights her focus on improving the quality of life for Iowans in all areas of their lives.
