Budget Shortfalls May Bring Special Session for Iowa
Gov. Kim Reynolds stated she will decide whether to call a special session of the Iowa Legislature in September. A special session may be needed to fix state budgetary shortfalls.
Reynolds has the authority to transfer money from the cash reserve fund if the deficit is $50 million or below.
If the deficit exceeds $50 million the Legislature would need to be called back for a special session.
