One Senator has called on further investigation, but the committee has not yet taken action. It will meet again where it could include a request for further investigation by the Senate Government Oversight Committee, which has the ability to subpoena witnesses.

At least one state senator is calling for the person in charge of the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown to step down so a more thorough investigation can be conducted. This follows repeated complaints over management of the Veterans home. The Senate Veterans Affairs committee held a meeting Monday  to hear testimony. Iowa Public Radio’s Clay Masters reports.
