First Week of Session Concludes

January 12, 2024

The first week of the session just concluded. Legislators spent time sharing their priorities with opening day speeches and listening to key leaders in the state talk about their vision to move Iowa forward. The weather didn’t slow down legislators, who were stuck in town and subcommittees were already getting scheduled.

Here are a few additional highlights:

  • ABI’s Vice President, Public Policy, JD Davis was featured on the Business Record's Legislative Forecast. Rewatch it here.
