January 2021 - On January 14, Representative Bruce Hunter, D-Des Moines, has introduced the National Popular Vote scheme in the Iowa Legislature. It is Bill HF-71.
We expect a fairly heavy push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, in Iowa in early 2021.
Iowa is a Republican State, fairly Conservative, though it has leaned to the left-of-center on more than one occasion. Former Governor Chet Culver, in May 2011, endorsed the NPVIC scheme while on a visit to the National Press Club in Washington, DC. There is been no other action taken by Iowa on this proposal.
Iowa has never had the NPVIC introduced into its Legislature.
The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme has been passed only by Democrat legislatures and the backers of the plan desperately need to show that there scheme is "bi-partisan" in nature - something that they have not yet been able to do.
We believe that Iowa is perfect target for the NPVIC sales force in early 2021 just to make this point.
Contact Iowa General Assembly Members
Demand that they take every action possible to STOP the NPVIC whenever it appears.
