Let’s penalize our legislators

Here we go again. The Iowa Legislature did not complete their responsibilities within the first 100 days of the 2018 session. Although legislators pay stops at 100 days, taxpayers’ are saddled with expenses incurred after 100 days.

There is an easy fix to exceeding the 100-day legislative session. That is to penalize each legislator $250 per day for each day after 100 days until the session ends.

I believe it is safe to say that if such a policy was implemented future legislative sessions would never exceed 100 days.
