Mary Ann Hanusa (born May 26, 1963) is the Iowa State Representative from the 16th District. A Republican, she has served in the Iowa House of Representatives since 2011. Hanusa was born, raised, and resides in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She has a B.S. in education from Concordia Teachers College and a M.A. in American history from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
As of January 2013[update], Hanusa serves on several committees in the Iowa House – the Education, Labor, and Local Government committees. She also serves as the chair of the Economic Growth committee and as a member of the Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee. Before election to the Iowa House, she served on the staff of Senator Charles Grassley before becoming director of the Office of Presidential Personal Correspondence under George W. Bush. She was the Republican candidate for Iowa Secretary of State in 2006, replacing previous nominee Chuck Allison, who dropped out of the race after the primary.
During the 2017 legislative session, Hanusa voted to shorten both the amount of time one may cast an absentee ballot and the number of days one can vote at satellite polling sites, and he voted to require all voters to present a state-issued ID. Though he voted for the measure, the bill was opposed by the Iowa State Association of Counties, an advocacy group for Iowa's disabled, and Iowa's Department on Aging opposed the bill.
