The 2022 Iowa Legislative Session convenes today at the statehouse in Des Moines.
Most major legislation from the 2021 session was directed by the Republican majority in both the senate and house. House District 52 Representative Todd Prichard (D) of Charles City says he expects more partisanship this session.
Senate District 26 State Senator Waylon Brown (R) of Osage says he looks to reach “across the aisle” to benefit constituents.
Brown says he and Prichard will once again host town hall meetings during the legislative session to get more input from constituents, but that schedule has not been set.
Both Prichard and Brown say tax cuts are expected to be a hot topic for the 89th Iowa General Assembly, which is slated to end April 19th.
