Leaders Say Adjournment Looming for Iowa Lawmakers

DES MOINES (AP) - Iowa legislative leaders say the session could adjourn as soon as Friday, but they acknowledge a mountain of work remains.

None of the spending packages that cover the state's roughly $6 billion budget have been approved, and Democrats also want to act on a $600 million overhaul of Iowa's income tax system.

Leaders say it could all come together in a matter of days.

The income tax changes are scheduled for debate in the House on
Tuesday.

There is no timeline for ending the session, but daily expense payments stop after 110 days. That would put the end of the session at May 1, but legislative leaders have promised to finish up work early as a way to save money.
