HOUSE SPEAKER PAT GRASSLEY SAYS LAWMAKERS IN THE HOUSE MAY BE NEARING AN AGREEMENT RESOLVING THE IMPASSE OVER IOWA’S SO-CALLED BOTTLE BILL.

GRASSLEY SAYS A POTENTIAL DEAL WOULD INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR REDEMPTION CENTERS.

THE REQUIREMENT THAT GROCERY STORES AND OTHER RETAILERS THAT SELL BEVERAGES ACCEPT THE EMPTIES AND PAY BACK THE NICKLE DEPOSIT COULD BE WAIVED:

GRASSLEY, WHO IS ENTERING HIS 15TH YEAR IN THE IOWA HOUSE, IS THE GRANDSON OF U.S. SENATOR CHUCK GRASSLEY.

THE YOUNGER GRASSLEY SAYS THE ELDER GRASSLEY OPPOSES REPEALING THE BOTTLE BILL.
