2021 Legislative Guide
Our 2021-2022 Guide to the Iowa Legislature has just about everything you need to know about the Iowa legislative process and the people who are elected to work there!
The Iowa Legislature may be done for the year but Congress is just getting started. We have an easy way for you to let your federal elected officials know about the issues important to you!
Welcome to infoNET!
The Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council created the infoNET advocacy forum in partnership with Iowans with Disabilities in Action to give you the information, tools, resources and opportunities you need to take action on the issues important to you. Our newsletter and network of resources helps advocates with disabilities stay up-to-date on current issues by:
- Letting you know what the Iowa Legislature & US Congress are up to - and what you can do to influence their decisions.
- Keeping tabs on the Iowa Governor’s office and state agency initiatives
- Suggesting ways to make you more effective in your advocacy and your message powerful and persuasive.
- Connecting you with other advocates using social media, online training, and community conversations.
- Letting you know when there are opportunities to bring your issue to the attention of law makers and opinion leaders.
