Iowa Senate Republicans Kill Felon Voting Rights Constitutional Amendment Bill
DES MOINES, Iowa -- One of Governor Reynolds' key legislative priorities was defeated at the State Capitol Thursday. The Senate Judiciary Committee, lead by Urbandale Republican Brad Zaun, declined to vote on House Joint Resolution 14, effectively killing the bill for the remainder of the year. This is a funnel week at the legislature. Any non-budget bills that don't make it out of committee by the end of the week are ineligible for debate for the rest of the session.
