Essential Estrogen: Pay equity bill passes Iowa House, heads back to Senate
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Members of the Iowa House overwhelmingly supported passage of a bill
that seeks to add pay discrimination into the Iowa Civil Rights Code.
The bill, which was first past along party lines by the Iowa Senate on
Feb. 16, had minor changes in the House version that will require
another nod from the Senate before heading to the Governor's desk. The
House changes are primarily cosmetic. Information that was previously
placed into an existing subparagraph of the Civil Rights Code was
pulled out and then given its own new subparagraph. Therefore, it is
highly likely that the bill will once again gain Senate approval.
