Iowa Legislature Goes Into Overtime

Iowa Legislature Goes Into Overtime
DES MOINES, IA - A divided Iowa Legislature is having a hard time bridging differences between the parties, leading to frustration as the session continues past its scheduled end date.

Republican hold a majority in the House, and Democrats control the Senate. That's complicated efforts to approve bill on a host of topics, including key budget matters.

Republican Gov. Terry Branstad is urging legislative leaders to be patient, but after nearly four months lawmakers are growing frustrated.

The Legislature was scheduled to end the session Friday but will be back at work this week.

Senate Majority Leader Michael Gronstal says Democrats continue to negotiate with Republicans, but no one expects a quick finish to the session. Last week, lawmakers were sent home and told to await a call before returning to the Capitol.
