Our Network

Bill Tracker

The 2020 Iowa Legislature is currently in session.  We will add to our bill tracker daily, and update status at least once every day.  We are having some trouble with some browsers displaying the list below.  If you cannot see anything in the box below, use this link.  Rest assured, we're trying to fix it!

  • The list that you see below is the "active" list.  All of these bills have cleared the first legislative deadline and have been voted out of committee.  Some bills are not subject to deadlines (those in the Appropriations, Ways & Means, or Government Oversight Committees).  
  • If you click on the dropdown box below and change "active" to "inactive," you will be able to see the bills that are no longer alive and are off the list of issues to be debated this year.  Clever legislators can always take these bills and amend them to other bills (where there is a will, there is a way).
