The legislative session is a bust

The Iowa Statehouse - Where legislation goes to die

Nothing substantial has come from Des Moines this session, not that many had very high hopes of any action this time around.

For instance, HF 2116 (a bill protecting private information) passed subcommittee and then withdrawn a couple of weeks later.

Or how about HF2012 (lowering the acceptable age for handgun handling)? Passed subcommittee and promptly went nowhere.

Despite some procedural wrangling on Constitutional Carry that also went nowhere, we so-far note a lack of pro-freedom legislation from the statehouse.
