I’m receiving more constituency emails than usual this session. It means a lot more time spent answering them – but it also means more Iowans are getting involved in the political process. That’s awesome.
This weekend, I’m hearing from many Cedar Rapidians in opposition to HF 542. It’s a horrible bill, and I’m amazed Committee Chairperson has scheduled a sub-committee for it Monday.
Today I introduced SF 469. A bill that would end marijuana prohibition in Iowa. It establishes a framework for regulating marijuana like alcohol. Iowa would join ten other states that allow adult (21 years of age) use of marijuana. Let me know what you think of the legislation. Here is a link to the bill.

Another bill successfully defeated!
HSB 213 is a charter school bill. Iowa already has many educational choices; we don't need to divert more scarce tax dollars to for-profit charter schools.
Beyond pleased this bill is dead.
