Little compromise in Iowa Legislature
Bills are sent to conference committees to be revamped when agreement isn't reached
Iowa Rep. Jack Drake, R-Griswold, said the Iowa Legislature is moving slowly because there isn’t a lot of agreement between the Iowa Senate and Iowa House of Representatives. Sen. Hubert Houser, R-Carson, didn’t disagree.
The two Iowa lawmakers talked about the current session during a legislative coffee Saturday morning in the multi-purpose room of Southwestern Community College. The coffee, sponsored by Creston Chamber of Commerce, was the final one of this year.
“We’re moving most everything into conference committee, and this week was really quite a light, light week for us in the Senate,” said Houser. “Thursday morning we did one little bill. It was on the commercial property tax and the Senate just refused to agree with the House version, so that’s ready to go into the conference committee.”
