(Milford)-Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley made a stop at Okoboji High School on Thursday where he met with students.
The Republican Senator told KUOO news that he has several current projects in the works:
"I'm trying to get my prescription drug bill passed so we can get prescription drug prices down, and I'm working in a bipartisan way with Wyden of Oregon, and then I'm working in a bipartisan way with Durbin of Illinois to get some more criminal justice reform done like we did with the First Step Act two years ago, and then, the third thing would be more related just to agriculture, and it would be to get a better market for our livestock producers, because presently, four companies have 80 percent of the market. So, the independent producer doesn't get a fair shot. So, I've got a bill in that would guarantee at least 50 percent of the daily slaughter would have to be the negotiated market."
