What bills are still alive after major deadline for lawmakers

River to River, hosted by Ben Kieffer

It’s been a busy few weeks at the Capitol after a second deadline has passed: restrictions on cell phone use while driving, birth control availability, parents’ rights in education, eminent domain, and more.

On this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer discusses the bills that made it through and the bills that are probably dead for the 2023 session with Iowa Statehouse reporters.
