Legislative session nears end - KWWL - Eastern Iowa Breaking News, Weather, Closings

Legislative session ends early Sunday morning

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Lawmakers wrapped up this year's legislative session just after 5 a.m. Sunday.  This morning, members put the final touches on a $715 million plan to pay for flood recovery and repairs to the state's infrastructure.

Minority leader Kraig Paulsen said this year's assembly will be memorable for two reasons.

Paulsen said, "We actually did do some good bi-partisan work to rebuild Iowa.  I'm not sure we did enough and I'm not sure we did it fast enough.  The other thing that will stand out is the absolute unprecedented level of spending. "
