Letter: Legislators should stop interfering

Funny how Iowa Republican legislators have hustled to do the Koch Brothers’ bidding while all the time arguing for the need for local control and less interference from big government.

HF 259 opposes local control and will remove counties’ ability to make a decision for a livable minimum wage. Why should the legislators care if counties want to raise the minimum wage? What is wrong with requiring a livable wage?
