Friday (May 1) is the 110th day of the legislative session.  That is the final day that legislators will get an expense check to help pay for the cost of traveling to Des Moines and staying in Des Moines (mileage, hotel, meals).  They also lose their staff allowance.  Legislators probably won't be done by Friday, but they will be trying to get as much wrapped up by then as possible. 

During the legislative session we publish infoNET every other week. Since we are getting close to the end, we may delay publication if it appears legislators will finish session soon.  Watch for social media posts (Facebook) and news alerts at www.infonetiowa.org.
