IPR's Morning Edition host Clay Masters talks with IPR state government reporter Katarina Sostaric about an election bill on Gov. Reynolds's desk that awaits her signature and about where some of her other priorities stand.
Many of Iowa Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds's legislative priorities this session have advanced in the state legislature ahead of a deadline this week to get bills out of committee. Lawmakers call it funnel week. There is just one of her 2021 legislative session priorities that has not received a hearing at the statehouse. Republican lawmakers in the legislature worked quickly last week to get a bill to her desk that would shorten the window for early voting and on Election Day in Iowa.
