Intro from Executive Director Emily Shields

  • This week was the second funnel deadline at the legislature, meaning bills will have to pass through committee in both the House and Senate to stay eligible this session. You will notice that several bills have dropped of our tracking list as a result. Proposals can always come back in other bills later in session, however, so we will continue to monitor.

  • Budget targets are expected to be released in both chambers next week, however, there likely will not be enough detail available yet for us to know where we stand on our appropriations requests for another few weeks. 

  • Congratulations to Senator Amy Sinclair and Representative Bobby Kaufmann, who were awarded this year’s Hoover Presidential Foundation Uncommon Public Service Award! This award is given annually to one senator and one representative for their service.

  • Governor Kim Reynolds has announced new grant awards for commercial driver's license (CDL) training in Iowa. The Entry-Level Driver Training Program will help Iowa meet its strong demand for truck drivers and school bus drivers by providing $2.94 million to support 46 different training programs across the state. Check out the press release.
