John Deeth Blog: No big action in Iowa election bills

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

There's no election bills on the docket of the Iowa Legislature that
are as big as 2007's election day registration law, 2008's elimination
of even-year school board elections, or the pre-trifecta era
Republican efforts at requiring photo ID to vote. But there's still a
few interesting proposals sitting at the subcommittee stage. Thursday
I looked at the recall bill, which probably got the oomph knocked out
of it on Friday when the Linn County Supervisors reversed course and
took their pay cut. Yesterday I noted Mark Kuhn's bill requiring
special election rather than appointment for U.S. Senators, but that
was mostly an excuse for old war stories.
