Iowa Independent: Session could close Friday
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent
The state's $6 billion budget and a $600 million tax system overhaul are still in the works, but legislative leaders are holding out hope the session could adjourn as early as Friday. Also on the legislature's plate is Gov. Chet Culver's $750 million bonding plan to pay for flood repairs and work on Iowa's aging infrastructure. On top of it all, opponents of same-sex marriage have said they will push for legislative action on a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage before the session is over. Four pieces of legislation backed by labor unions are also still on the table, although their future appears bleak.
