Mission Statement

It is the purpose of the Older Iowans Legislature to "Pursue Quality of Life for Older Iowans."

We will voice their needs to the general public, all governmental bodies, and service providers. We will provide opportunities for older Iowans to learn and participate in governmental processes to help solve problems facing seniors.

In formulating our policies we will seek the wisdom, knowledge and concerns of all, but will speak as an independent voice for older Iowans.
