Guide to the 2013-2014 Iowa Legislature

For many years, we have published special issues of infoNET at the start of each legislative session with information on new legislators, committee membership, website resources available, contact information for elected officials, and frequently called numbers.

This year we are combining these issues into a single “Guide to the Iowa Legislature” so that you have a single user-friendly resource.  We hope that you will keep this Guide and use it to help with your advocacy efforts.  

PART 1

  • ABOUT THE LEGISLATURE
    WHAT CAN MY LEGISLATOR DO FOR ME?
    LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP

PART 2

  • MEET THE SENATORS

PART 3

  • MEET THE REPRESENTATIVES

PART 4

  • LEGISLATIVE PROCESS
    SESSION TIMETABLE
    COMMITTEES
    CONTACT INFORMATION
    GOVERNOR & STATEWIDE ELECTED OFFICIALS
    WEBSITE RESOURCES
    FREQUENTLY CALLED NUMBERS

There are many issues facing the Iowa Legislature this year, including funding for the ongoing redesign of the mental health and disability services system.   Lawmakers do not always know how a bill they are voting on will affect the people they are elected to represent.  That’s why it is so important that you let them know.

In the words of a famous author, “It is easy to sit up and take notice. What is difficult is getting up and taking action.”   We hope this guide will help you do just that – stop taking notice, and get up and take action!
