Lawmakers http://iowapublicradio.org en Session Ends, Campaigning Begins http://iowapublicradio.org/post/session-ends-campaigning-begins <p>The Iowa Legislature adjourned last week and even though it’s an election year, lawmakers managed to get a few big items accomplished, including a $7-billion budget and a bill that decriminalizes some forms of medical marijuana in the state. At the same time, priority bills from the governor to crack down on schoolyard bullying and expand broadband to rural parts of the state failed.
