Iowa senator rick bertrand exposes senate democrats for blocking stand your ground

Rick Bertrand (born December 22, 1969) is a Republican politician and legislator from the state of Iowa. He was elected to the Iowa Senate in 2010. He represents District 7, which serves the Sioux City area.


After graduating from Bishop Heelan High School, he attended Iowa Central Community College before obtaining a degree at the University of Northern Iowa in Political Science. He is on the board of directors for the Sioux City Art Center. Before being elected to the state senate, he unsuccessfully ran for the 2nd district seat of the Iowa House of Representatives in 2008.

In 2016, he is running in the primary for the Republican nomination for Iowa's 4th congressional district.


Bertrand voted in support of House File 625, which eliminated the requirement that parents report on their state taxes whether or not they have healthcare for their children. In this bill, Bertrand also voted to eliminate the requirement that parents apply for healthcare coverage, such as Hawk-i or Medicaid, for their children.

Workers' Rights

During the 2017 legislative session, Bertrand voted for House File 295 which eliminates local control in municipalities that voted to increase their own minimum wage locally. Bertrand's vote will cause the minimum wage to be lowered in four counties which had already voted to raise their minimum wage (Johnson, Linn, Wapello, and Polk). Estimates show that at least 64,300 residents of Iowa will have their wages effectively lowered, including 35,800 to 36,000 in Polk County, 10,100 in Johnson County, and 18,400 in Linn County.
