ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Republican District 78 State Rep. Jarad Klein of Keota sees his experience as a strong point as he seeks a fifth term in the House.

Klein was elected assistant house majority leader in 2016, and serves on the Administration & Rules, Agriculture, Environmental Protection, Labor and Public Safety committees.

“It helps to have that institutional knowledge,” Klein, a fifth-generation farmer, said during a visit with The News on Wednesday, Oct. 17. “I was first elected in 2010, and I spent my first term learning.”

He said that one thing many people do not understand is that it takes a lot of time to get things done in the legislature.

“We can pass whatever we want, but unless the governor signs it, it’s not going anywhere,” he said.

One example of that, he noted, was his work to get the state to pass the use of cannabidoil (CBD oil) after hearing from a family in District 78.

He explained that the use of CBD oil for epilepsy was a first passed in 2014. The legislature has since expanded the list of allowable diseases and approved an in-state manufacturer and five dispensaries.
