Iowa Adjourns Sine Die
The Iowa Legislature adjourned sine die May 19 after being in session for 129 days.
Lawmakers remained in session past their original adjournment date of April 30 to reach a consensus on a tax cut package.
Other legislation passed during the session included a bill banning cities, counties, and school districts from implementing mask mandates, which Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law less than an hour after the session adjourned at 11:45 PM.
Lawmakers also passed a bill reducing the state’s early voting period and closing the polls an hour earlier on election day for all future elections.
