Marion Denger visits with Legislators in Washington D.C.

Marion Denger Advocates for Cooperatives in Washington D.C.

Prairie Energy Cooperative board president Marion Denger, along with more than 35 representatives from dozens of Iowa’s not-for-profit electric cooperatives, recently returned from a successful trip to the nation’s capital. While in Washington, D.C., the advocates attended high-level briefings on key issues impacting the electric industry and met with Iowa’s Congressional Delegation to discuss priorities. While many issues were discussed, Iowa’s electric co-ops focused on the President’s budget proposal, the Farm Bill reauthorization, and geothermal tax credits.
