Ben and Bawb's Blog: Iowa Weapons Bill Clears 1st Hurdle

Excerpted from this post at Ben and Bawb's Blog

Last week was "funnel week" in the Iowa legislature. During funnel
week all bills that haven't been approved by the respective committee
considering them are dead for the year. Bills that have been approved
then proceed to the full House of Representatives or Senate to be
voted on. Among the survivors of this winnowing process is HF 2092,
the bill seeking to provide uniformity to Iowa's concealed weapons
permit system. [I wrote about this bill previously.] Passing the
committee by an impressive 18 to 3 majority, reports
that the bill will probably be voted on by the full membership of the
House within the next two weeks. Iowans who care about this issue are
encouraged to contact their state representative and urge them to
support House File 2092.
