INTERIM STUDY COMMITTEES APPROVED

More articles »

The Legislative Council has approved three interim committees that will meet between now and the end of the year to review three issues that lawmakers thought needed more study.  They will make recommendations to the Legislature for consideration in the 2016 legislative session.  These committees will:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of Iowa's reycling system, including bottle deposit laws and handling fees.
  • Look at school finance inequities.
  • Study the need for a non-smoking casino in Cedar Rapids.

In addition there will be a committee established in the near future to oversee the transition Medicaid to a managed care system.  You can find out more about these committees and when they will meet at https://www.legis.iowa.gov/committees.  While information about them is not yet posted here, it will be available soon so check back in a few weeks.
