A measure strengthening Iowa's animal cruelty laws, a proposal allowing over the counter birth control, and a bill to change the limit on the potency of medical marijuana have all made it through the second funnel week at the Iowa legislature, allowing the bills to be considered and possibly passed before the end of the session.

In this hour of River to River, Ben Kieffer and co-host Katarina Sostaric talk with several Iowa statehouse reporters about the bills that have made it through the latest legislative funnel, and which did not.

Panelists include:

  • Kay Henderson, news director of Radio Iowa
  • Caroline Cummings, Iowa statehouse and politics reporter for Sinclair Broadcast Group's Iowa stations
  • Stephen Gruber-Miller, legislative reporter for the Des Moines Register
Ben Kieffer is the host of IPR's River to River
