QUICK TIP: BILLS IN COMMITTEE

More articles »

Not only is it easy to find the bills your legislators sponsored this year, it's also easy to see all of the bills that are in a committee.  While we track bills in our Bill Tracker that we think will interest you, we know that our readers care about many issues.  Some of you are hunters, and may want to know if changes are being made to hunting licenses.  Others are interested in taxes, and want to see changes in that area.  Maybe others want to make sure our veterans get the respect they deserve, and want to see what legislators are doing in that area. 

It's easy to see the full list of bills that are assigned to any given committee - whether its the Natural Resources Committee (for hunting issues), Ways and Means Committee (for tax issues), or Veterans Affairs Committee (for veterans issues).  Just follow these steps:

  1. Clck on this link: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/committees.
  2. Click on the committee.
  3. In the bottom right corner, you'll see "Legislation." Click on the "Bills in Committee" link.
  4. A list of bills in that committee will show up. These bills have to get out of committee before March 6, or they are dead for the year (unless you are looking at the Appropriations or Ways & Means Committee - bills in these committees are exempt from the deadline).
