Lawmakers remains divided over spending
DES MOINES (AP) — The speaker of the Iowa House said Thursday that Republicans “have nothing left to give” in budget negotiations, and Democrats signaled they don’t plan more compromises either as the impasse appeared certain to stretch at least into next week.
Speaker Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha, told reporters that Republicans have already agreed to more spending than they think is needed.
“I don’t think laying down ultimatums is helpful,” Paulsen said. “We’ve tried to be respectful of the Democrats’ priorities and the governor’s priorities. We have largely given everything we have. We have nothing left to give.”
