With end in sight, House majority stalling on reform, budget
With the legislative session scheduled to adjourn next week, we took a few steps forward this week, but also took a few steps back. While house majority leadership set a goal to wrap-up early this year, the 100th day of the session will come and go next Tuesday. Mental health redesign and property tax reform are long overdue for debate on the house floor. What did the house majority choose to debate Wednesday afternoon? They brought up HF 2467, an act relating to the regulation of snowmobiles, ATVs, and boats. It’s time to focus on reform packages and a balanced budget.
Fortunately, the Senate is moving forward.
The Iowa Senate approved an education package with competency-based instruction at the center of their plan. Competency-based education is one of the newer, proven concepts in teaching that allows students to move on once they have mastered specific concepts and skills. The education plan which passed through the house also utilizes competency based concepts. Perhaps this will serve as the common-ground necessary for compromise to take shape.
