Anti-bullying bill looks dead in Iowa Legislature
DES MOINES (AP) — An online bullying bill that was backed by Gov. Terry Branstad appears to be one of many that have died in the Iowa Legislature this week.
While major initiatives like health care, education policy and property tax reductions remain alive, a variety of other proposals are technically dead. Friday is the procedural deadline — known as the “second funnel” for many bills to get full approval from one chamber in the General Assembly and committee-level approval in the other chamber — and lawmakers have effectively concluded work for the week.
Branstad said Thursday he’s still hopeful there might be action on the cyberbullying bill during this session.
