Rep. Kim Pearson, R-Pleasant Hill, is scheduled to appear on WHO radio talk show host Jan Mikelson's "Mikelson in the Morning" program at 9 a.m. Friday to discuss the life at conception measure, House File 153, that recently moved out of a House commitee.
Pearson, who represents the western portion of Jasper County, made mention of her pending appearance on the radio program (AM 1040) during the release of her most recent legislative newsletter.
The legislative act relating to the protection of life beginning at conception proposed by Rep. Pearson, a first term lawmaker who defeated Democratic-party-hierarchy-connected Geri Huser at the polls last November, states that the "State of Iowa recognizes that life is valued and protected from the moment of conception, and each life, from that moment, is accorded the same rights and protections guaranteed to all persons by the Constitution of the Unites States, the Constitution of the State of Iowa, and the laws of this state."
The measure goes on to state that the Iowa Supreme Court "shall not have appellate jurisdiction over the provisions of this section."
Rep. Pearson's weekly communication with constituents also talks about legislation passed out of the House pertaining to reductions of individual income tax rates and new "home rule"provisions afforded local school districts.
Rep. Pearson is scheduled to attend a legislative coffee sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Jasper County set for 9 a.m. Saturday at the Club Room at the Newton Hy-Vee.
