Introduction from Emily Shields

This was a short week at the legislature as negotiations on big-ticket items continue. The House did not have any committees or floor action. The Senate had some floor action on remaining policy bills, including a provision for manufactured homes. There was no action this week on budget bills or the policy items we are tracking. Tuesday was the 100th day of session, which means that after that day, legislators do not receive their daily expense funding. This typically signals that the end of the session is near, however, this year it remains unclear when that will occur.

Congratulations to Iowa Lakes Community College on hiring Scott Stokes as their next president!
