Posted on 24 February 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The self imposed legislative deadline hit this week and that meant that bills that hadn’t cleared a committee in either the State House or Senate are pretty much done. ┬áSenate Minority Leader, Senator Jerry Behn of Boone says there are a some companion bills in one house or the other that might keep an issue alive, but there are not many of those. ┬áRepresentative Chip Baltimore says education and mental health reform are still moving and bills in either Ways and Means or Appropriations are not limited by the funnel. ┬áBaltimore says he expects some floor debate to begin next week.
