Key bills clear ‘the funnel’ deadline
It’s ‘funnel week’ at the Capitol. That means we’re at the halfway mark in the 110 day legislative session. ‘Funnel week’ is the first self-imposed legislative deadline we use to narrow the number of bills still eligible for debate and voting. While there are a few exceptions for tax and budget bills, any bill that has not cleared a House or Senate Committee this week is ineligible for consideration the rest of the session.
Upon first look, the results of funnel week are encouraging. While most of the extreme agenda is dead, measures to grow Iowa’s middle class are on the move.
Several members of the house majority party have been pushing a very narrow, polarizing, social and economic agenda. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and many pieces of their extreme agenda were stopped this week.
