24-Hour Dorman: Gronstal-Murphy visit

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Been out most of the day following around legislators touring the
flood zone and meeting with residents. But I couldn't miss out on our
Gazette editorial board meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mike
Gronstal and House Speaker Pat Murphy. Quickly, the highlights:
Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs, said some kind of flood recovery
legislation will move quickly, by late January or early February. It
may include direct assistance from the state's Economic Emergency
Fund, aka, the rainy day reserves. He wouldn't say how much money
would be available, assigning it only the shadowy value "X." Stay
tuned. Gronstal clearly did not like persistent questioning from the
board on why leaders blew off calls for a special session last fall to
deal with recovery needs.
