April 22, 2022
The second session of the 89th Iowa General Assembly will continue into next week and likely beyond, as policymakers are still working to reach agreements on a variety of significant policy proposals and the budget. Per diem expenses expired this week for lawmakers, as Tuesday marked the 100th day of the session. The Iowa Senate debated on Monday and Tuesday, while the Iowa House did not have any floor debates this week.
The House, Senate and Gov. Kim Reynolds are working to agree on key issues including educational savings accounts & educational transparency, unemployment insurance reform, renewable fuels legislation and the Governor’s second workforce bill. Other key issues that could also be considered are tax reform 2.0, eminent domain, tort reform and medical freedom. The status of ABI’s priorities did not change this week.
