    As Iowa’s 43rd Governor, Kim Reynolds is determined to make sure that Iowa’s success is every Iowan’s success. Whether it’s preparing Iowans for cutting-edge careers, fighting for education, improving healthcare and mental health access, or empowering our rural communities, Kim’s priorities are making a difference in all four corners of the state. Her vision keeps Iowans at the center of all decisions, especially in the area of fiscal responsibility. Kim knows that when Iowa taxpayers are able to keep more of their money, great things happen. She also believes in redemption. Kim’s justice reform initiatives carefully balance second chances with victim rights. As Governor, Kim’s strong voice for international trade, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing is opening new markets and maintaining relationships with leaders in China, Mexico, Canada, Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Germany, Brazil and Argentina, to name just a few. Although she’s traveled the world telling Iowa’s story, Kim is still a small-town girl at heart with common-sense values. These principles are reflected in the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa initiative and Future Ready Iowa. At age 57, Kim earned a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University. Then, nearly two years later, on Nov. 4, 2018, she was elected by Iowans to become their first woman Governor. Family means everything to Kim and her husband, Kevin. They have three daughters (Jennifer, Nicole and Jessica) who are happily married, and Kim and Kevin love spending time with their 10 very active grandchildren.

    Gov. Kim Reynolds, Lt. Gov. Gregg released the following statements after the Iowa House and Senate voted unanimously to pass S.F. 2400, legislation derived from recommendations of the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa Initiative: 

    “If Iowa is to succeed, we always have to be forward-looking and nimble to the demands of the ever-changing 21st century economy. Expanding broadband connectivity connects Iowans in every corner of our state to the new opportunities that exist in telehealth, education, and telework,” said Gov. Reynolds. “By empowering rural communities through broadband connectivity, we chart a course for Iowa’s continued growth and success.” 

    “Rural broadband has been a priority of this administration from day one, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the increased importance of broadband connectivity in the everyday lives of Iowans,” said Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg, co-chair of the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa Initiative. “This bill is another step forward to help connect even more Iowans.”

    S.F. 2400 passed the Iowa Senate earlier today and passed unanimously out of the Iowa House of Representatives on Thursday, June 4th.
