Jane directs national coverage, managing staff and freelance reporters in the nation’s capital and assigning and editing state-specific daily and enterprise stories. Before coming to States Newsroom, she was the editor for national education policy and the congressional budget and appropriations process for POLITICO. A native of Illinois, Jane earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Drake University in Des Moines and landed her first job at The Des Moines Tribune, which shut down a year later. Switching to the sister paper, The Des Moines Register, she covered everything from small-town city councils to the Iowa Statehouse to the first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses. Jane then moved to the Register’s Washington bureau, where for 20 years she followed the Iowa congressional delegation and wrote the “Potomac Fever” weekly column. In 2009, she joined CQ Roll Call, where she was a reporter and editor for eight years.
