Iowa legislators prepare for tough negotiations over state budget

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa Legislators are bracing for a session full of tough negotiations over the state budget.

This comes during a time when tax revenue is expected to grow, but at a slow pace.

According to the Associated Press, lawmakers are left with tough choices because laws already on the books will push spending up by $313 million next year.

Another difficulty legislators face is the division between Republicans and Democrats with differing views on Iowa's property tax system.
