THE IOWA LEGISLATURE RECONVENED MONDAY FOR A FEW MINUTES, AND THEN ADJOURNED UNTIL THURSDAY, FRUSTRATING SOME LAWMAKERS WHO HAD MADE THE TRIP BACK TO DES MOINES.

STATE REPRESENTATIVE STEVE HANSEN OF SIOUX CITY SHOWED UP ON THE HOUSE FLOOR MONDAY MORNING:

NOBUDGET1 OC…UNTIL NEXT WEEK. :20

THE STATE BUDGET WAS PASSED DURING THE REGULAR SESSION BY THE HOUSE, BUT THE BUDGET BILLS HAVE YET TO BE BROUGHT TO A VOTE BY THE SENATE:

NOBUDGET2 OC………GAVEL OUT. :25

SO FOR NOW THERE IS NOTHING FOR MOST OF THE LAWMAKERS TO DO IN DES MOINES UNTIL THE G-O-P SENATE LEADERSHIP DECIDES TO MOVE ON THE BUDGET:

NOBUDGET3 OC……..FOR GOOD. :20

MANY LAWMAKERS DECIDED TO RETURN HOME AS THEIR PER DIEM EXPENSES EXPIRED TWO WEEKS AGO.
