Iowa Legislative update - March 24, 2020

Bringing rural Iowa to Des Moines

As you are probably aware, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Iowa Legislature has suspended its session until April 15 to combat the spread of the virus. While we will not be tracking any legislation or sending out our regular legislative updates, Center staff will be available as a resource to you during this time of uncertainty.
