If you missed our exclusive interview with Rep. Ras Smith (D-Waterloo) this past Sunday on News/Talk 1540 KXEL here is that conversation. Rep. Smith tells us he is committed to providing for worker safety in Iowa and to that end is preparing legislation for consideration. We talk about the plight of "essential workers", COVID19, OSHA and why business, for productivity and profit, should be paying attention to worker health and safety.
