Who's who in the Iowa House for 2022

The Iowa House opened its 2022 session on January 10 with 60 Republicans and 40 Democrats, a one-seat gain for the GOP compared to last year, thanks to a special election last fall.

The House members include 69 men and 31 women (21 Democrats and ten Republicans), down from a record 34 women in 2019 and 33 women in 2020.

Six African Americans (Democrats Ako Abdul-Samad, Ruth Ann Gaines, Ras Smith, Phyllis Thede, and Ross Wilburn, and Republican Eddie Andrews) serve in the legislature’s lower chamber. Republican Mark Cisneros is the first Latino elected to the Iowa legislature, and Republican Henry Stone is only the second Asian American to serve in the House. The other 92 state representatives are white.

Democrat Liz Bennett is the only out LGBTQ member of the Iowa House. To my knowledge, Abdul-Samad (who is Muslim) is the only lawmaker in either chamber to practice a religion other than Christianity.

I’ve posted details below on the Iowa House majority and minority leadership teams, along with all chairs, vice chairs, and members of standing House committees. Where relevant, I’ve noted changes since last year’s session. The most significant: Republican Mike Bousselot won a September special election following the death of Republican John Landon, and Republican Jon Dunwell won an October special election after Democrat Wes Breckenridge left the legislature for another job.

Some non-political trivia: the Iowa House has two members with the surname Meyer (a Democrat and a Republican). As for popular first names, there are six Davids (three go by Dave), three Roberts (a Rob, a Bob, and a Bobby), three men named Tom or Thomas, three named Steve or Steven, three named Charles (a Chuck and two Charlies), three Brians, three men named Michael (two go by Mike), three Jons and two Johns, and two men each named Gary, Dennis, and Ross. There are also two Elizabeths (a Beth and a Liz), two Shannons, an Ann and an Anne, and two women named Mary (down from four in 2020).

Iowa House Republican leadership team

Pat Grassley remains speaker, a post he gained in late 2019. First elected in 2006, Grassley represents House district 50, covering Grundy County and parts of Hardin and Butler.

Matt Windschitl remains majority leader, having previously served as House speaker pro tem. He was first elected in 2006 and represents House district 17, covering all of Ida and Monona Counties and parts of Harrison and Woodbury Counties.

John Wills remains House speaker pro-tem and Mike Sexton remains majority whip. Both were chosen for those positions in late 2019. Wills has represented House district 1, covering Lyon and Osceola counties, plus most of Dickinson County, since 2015. Sexton was first elected in 2014 in House district 10, covering Humboldt, Pocahontas, and Calhoun counties, plus part of Webster County.

The four assistant majority leaders are the same as last year:

  • Cecil Dolecheck is the longest-serving member of the Republican caucus. He was first elected in 1996 and represents House district 24, covering Ringgold, Taylor and Page counties and part of Montgomery County.

Iowa House Democratic leadership team

Jennifer Konfrst became minority leader in June 2021. She was first elected in 2018 and represents House district 43, covering Windsor Heights, Clive, and part of West Des Moines in Polk County. Todd Prichard was minority leader during last year’s session.

Lindsay James moved up from assistant minority leader to minority whip, replacing Konfrst. She was first elected in 2018 in House district 99, covering part of Dubuque.

The caucus has two assistant minority leaders. Charlie McConkey was first elected in 2014 and represents House district 15, covering Carter Lake and part of Council Bluffs in Pottawattamie County. Eric Gjerde was just elected for the first time in House district 67, covering some suburban areas in Linn County.
