What to expect in the 2023 legislative session
Voters chose their local leaders in November, and those state senators and representatives will be sworn into office next week for what should be an eventful legislative session. House Speaker Pat Grassley said he's "pretty confident" a private school voucher program will pass this year. After the overturning of Roe v. Wade, stricter abortion laws could also be on the table.
