Speaker Kraig Paulsen Named Iowa Restaurant Association’s 2014 Legislator of the Year

September 22, 2014
Des Moines, IA – Iowa House of Representatives Speaker Kraig Paulsen has been named the Iowa Restaurant Association’s 2014 Legislator of the Year. The honor was presented to the Speaker at the Association’s annual awards gala by both the Chairmen of the Iowa Restaurant Association and National Restaurant Association Board of Directors Scott Carlson and Jack Crawford. A Pro-Business Mindset “This award honors the legislator who goes above and beyond to champion hospitality issues at the statehouse,” said Jessica Dunker, president and CEO of the Iowa Restaurant Association. “Speaker Paulsen encourages job creation and business growth in Iowa, and with 11,000 jobs projected to be added in Iowa in the next decade, we appreciate his support.” Speaker Paulsen’s standard by which he measures decisions requires the state to spend less than it collects and return unused tax dollars to Iowans. It also requires the state not use one-time money to fun on-going needs nor balance the budget by intentionally underfunding programs. His leadership qualities and pro-business legislation made Speaker Paulsen an obvious choice for the Association’s 2014 Legislator of the Year. ### Iowa Restaurant Association The Iowa Restaurant Association is an advocacy organization supporting Iowa’s industry with educational and promotional programs across the state.
