After late nights and long debates, controversy and agreement, the 2019 Iowa Legislature has adjourned for the year.  They will not come back together until next year, on Monday, January 13, 2020.  That's just before the Iowa caucuses!

You can see more about what happened - and didn't happen - this year in our bill tracker.
