Rumor has it that the Legislature will find savings in the current year by cutting their session short.  Legislative leaders are considering shortening the session to 85 days in order to save money.  That means legislators would lose their expense checks beginning April 2 (although they could keep working without pay until things get done).  That's just a little over a month away, with a lot of work to be done between now and then.  No action has been taken on this - its just a rumor at this point.

The new update of the INFONET Guide to the Iowa Legislature made appearances around the Capitol last week, showing up at an MCO table during Insurance Day at the Capitol, and in a doorkeeper's bag.  Who knows where we'll find it next!  Hopefully you've found yours in your mailboxes too - and you can always find it online here.
