Iowa lawmakers focus on spending cuts this week

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Spending cuts are expected to take center stage in the State House this week.

Iowa House Republicans want to approve a bill they say will save more than $500 million dollars over three years.

A public hearing on the proposed cuts will be held January 18 in the house chambers.

The proposals include ending a pre-school program, requiring state employees to contribute to their health insurance and ending state funded anti-smoking programs.
