With the start of a new year comes reflections of the past year, and many lawmakers highlighted their accomplishments in 2021.

Iowa’s U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne was among them, touting her accomplishments for 2021 in an end-of-year report published Dec. 21. The Democrat representing Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District listed her legislative accomplishments, including bills signed into law and grants awarded to Iowans. We’ll look into four of the claims Axne makes in the report.
