Little Action in Overtime Legislature So Far

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Little action was evident in the Iowa Senate on the first day after daily payments ended for lawmakers.

The state Senate officially met for two minutes on Monday. Not all senators reported to the Capitol in Des Moines. Those in attendance are mostly in leadership roles or on special negotiating committees.

Lawmakers are still trying to find resolution on major policy issues such as education, property taxes, health care and the overall budget plan.

Friday was the last day for lawmakers to receive expense payments. Two years ago, the session lasted until June 30, in part due to conflict over whether Iowa Medicaid funds could be used for some abortions.
