110th day of legislative session has arrived
Today marks the 110th day of the Iowa General Assembly, the targeted day for adjournment this year. While the legislature rarely adjourns on the exact day set by the Iowa Constitution, it does mean pay for lawmakers runs out. After a busy week moving the final pieces of the state budget and major issues to bi-partisan conference committees, there still is not final agreement between the House, Senate, and Governor.
When we head home for the weekend, it’s unclear how quickly things will be resolved. The conference committees will continue meeting and legislative leaders will have to work with the Governor to find common ground on the big issues like property taxes, education reform, and affordable health care.
While most legislators will be absent from the Capitol during final negotiations, I will be working in Des Moines to help iron out an important portion of the overall state budget.
