Blog for Iowa: State legislative session roundup

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

In a solid session of achievement, the Iowa legislature made
significant progress on expanding health care coverage, expanding
public school and pre-K funding, advancing clean energy proposals,
protecting veterans and students, taking on foreclosure abuses,
expanding workers' rights, and improving the integrity of state
ballots. However, the session was marked by a few significant
setbacks, including the governor's veto of a major labor rights bill.
Health Care: The signature achievements in Iowa came in advances for
health care and public health. Capping the legislative session was HF
2539, a bill to move the state towards full health coverage for
children of families earning up to three hundred percent of the
poverty line.
