Bleeding Heartland: How to win friends and influence state legislators

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The first "funnel" deadline passed at the end of last week, leaving
most of the bills introduced in the Iowa legislature dead for this
session. Summaries of notable bills that did and did not make it
through the funnel can be found here and here. Bills that have been
approved by a full committee remain alive for the 2009 session, and
Iowa House and Senate leaders can still introduce new measures. Also,
amendments affecting various programs could be attached to
appropriations bills that won't be finalized until next month. That
means advocates should be informed and ready to help persuade
legislators in the weeks to come.
