A little snow didn’t stop Representative Steve King, who stopped by the Butler County Tribune-Journal office in Allison Tuesday, April 3 to give readers an update on his work in Washington D.C. on his way to area meetings. King discussed tax cuts, de-regulation, foreign policy, fiscal responsibility and pro-life issues.

     The most exciting legislation he’s working on, he said, is the Heartbeat Bill.

     This pro-life legislation, introduced by King, would require an abortionist planning to conduct an abortion to first check for a heartbeat.

     “If a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected,” said King. “This is the most impactful piece of pro-life legislation that has made it this far in the U.S. Congress. It has 170 co-sponsors, and has been endorsed by 162 pro-life organizations and leaders.”
