Iowa Progress: Fighting for Newton
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Alright, I take it back, maybe Congress.org's Power Rankings do mean something. More likely though, it is just that Grassley's power means something. Either way, he is using his considerable influence in D.C. to help out nearby Newton in anticipation of the Maytag plant closing. Grassley has set up a meeting with Newton Mayor Chaz Allen and the Assistant Secretary of Labor to discuss giving some assistance to Newton.
