Plenty Of Proposals Awaiting Iowa Lawmakers
January 6, 2009, 2:43 PM
The Iowa Legislature won't convene until next week, but many proposals already await lawmakers.
Among the bills drafted before the session begins are proposals to toughen Iowa's smoking ban, further regulate the mortgage industry and reduce pollution from burning garbage. State agencies requested many of the bills, and Attorney General Tom Miller was among the most prolific filers. Among his proposals is the plan targeting mortgage brokers by requiring they put borrowers' interests ahead of all other parties.
The Legislature will convene Monday for a session expected to stretch into April.
