Legislative Update 4/4 [updated]

The Iowa Legislature is working through the procedural hurdles to get the education reforms to conference committee today.  After several votes this morning (the House refusing to concur with Senate amendments to HF 215 and the Senate insisting), the Senate has appointed the Senate Conference Committee:

  • Quirmbach (D-Story), Chair
  • Bowman (D-Jackson)
  • Wilhelm (D-Howard)
  • Ernst (R-Montgomery)
  • Sinclair (R-Wayne)

Update: The House has appointed members to the conference committee:

  • Jorgensen (R-Woodbury)
  • Dolecheck (R-Ringgold)
  • Stanerson (R-Linn)
  • Steckman (D-Cerro Gordo)
  • Wood (D-Scott)

The Iowa Legislature has added links to archived videos of the education reform bill debates.   Search by bill number (HF 215 and SF 423) and you’ll see the links on the left side of the page.

Note that the second funnel week deadline is Friday.  The Gazette has coverage here.  Apparently the anti-bullying bill is not expected to survive the second funnel deadline.
