Loebsack offices open during shutdown


The Daily Iowegian

---- — WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Dave Loebsack announced that his office is open and stands ready to serve all Iowans during the federal government shutdown. His district offices in Iowa City and Davenport, along with his Washington, D.C. office, are currently open and staffed during normal business hours. His toll-free phone number (1-866-914-IOWA) will be answered during normal business hours. Iowans can also visit http://loebsack.house.gov/shutdown to seek assistance.

“My number one priority as a Representative is making sure the needs of Iowans continue to be met even during a shutdown,” said Loebsack. “Just because the government remains closed, does not mean folks don’t need assistance dealing with federal agencies and working families don’t need support. In order to work on everything from ensuring seniors receive their Social Security checks to fighting for legislation to support the men and women working at the Rock Island Arsenal, my offices are open in order to best represent Iowans. I will continue working to mitigate the impact dysfunction in Washington has on Iowans during this time.”
