Conference Committee week
A conference committee is a group of legislators appointed by the Senate and House leadership to resolve differences between the two chambers on a bill. This week most of the pending legislation has been moved to conference committees. I am on the Healthy Iowa Plan conference committee. We met this morning and plan to continue to meet today and through early next week. Below are links to my opening comments on the floor and to an editorial the Des Moines Register printed this past week.
I also enjoyed giving a tour of the capitol to Natalie Brown and her staff from Scratch Cupcakery. Natalie recently opened a store in West Des Moines.
Thank you for your continued responses and support.
