Governor Signs Ag Proclamation, Supports Equality in Military Service
IOWA — Governor Kim Reynolds showed appreciation for agricultural entrepreneurs on Monday morning.
She signed the Agricultural Entrepreneurship Week Proclamation, which is meant to show an appreciation for the impact agricultural entrepreneurs add to the state and Iowa’s legacy in helping create world changing technologies, products, and services.
Following Monday morning’s signing, reporters asked the governor about her position on President Trump’s transgender military ban. Governor Reynolds said anyone willing to serve in the military deserves the nation’s respect.
“So less than 1% of Americans today sign up to serve and to defend those liberties and freedoms. And I think that anybody that signs up to serve our country and defend those liberties and freedoms deserves our utmost appreciation and respect,” she said.
The governor said she and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst are both in agreement on the issue.
