Anderson proposes plan to improve NW Iowa infrastructure

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV)- It's not something we all worry about on a daily basis. But, if you bike, drive, or walk, the roads are pretty important to you.

We're talking about infrastructure. State Senator Bill Anderson, of Pierson, says he's doing what he can to improve this.

He introduced Senate File 5, which would appropriate $1-million to roads and bridges.

Anderson says a 12-mile stretch of Highway 20, from Moville to Correctionville, is programmed in to the 5-year plan to be widened to four-lanes. But, there's still 28 remaining miles they need to find funding for.  "This is very important to Northwest Iowa and I think it isn't just that infrastructure, but also our secondary roads, our farm to market roads, bridges, there's a lot of infrastructure needs out there," said Anderson. "And, I just want to make sure that when we don't this, we don't impact working families by increasing a tax."

This issue along with working more on improving the state for seniors and veterans are some of the top reasons the Republican says he decided to run for re-election. He announced his re-election bid Friday.
