The 2020 Iowa Legislative Session is set to resume Wednesday, June 3, following a hiatus imposed by the threat of COVID-19.

“I think we’ll spend the first part of the day amending rules to deal with a truncated process,” Rep. Dustin Hite said. “Then there will be committee meetings, and I think we are coming back in to vote on some non-controversial bills that were ready before we left.” Rep. Jon Thorup echoed what Hite said about the House.

“Education, local government, transportation, and ag committees will be meeting tomorrow,” Sen. Amy Sinclair said is on her agenda. “A full debate schedule will begin at 3. The remainder of the week will be similar with different committees meeting each day. Hopefully we can get our work done in a couple of weeks.”
