Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird makes good on threats to sue Biden
What has Iowa AG Brenna Bird sued the feds over in her first year? Quite a lot.
Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird hasn’t been shy about letting the Biden administration know what she thinks.
Since taking office in January 2023 after defeating incumbent Democrat Tom Miller, Iowa’s first Republican attorney general in 44 years has kept busy litigating against the federal government, either joining cases brought by other conservative-leaning states or filing her own lawsuits.
Bird ran for election promising the Biden administration to “see you in court,” and over her first year she’s done so on topics ranging from ethanol sales to cybersecurity regulations to the prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
