Iowa lawmakers may need to extend legislative session

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The 84th Iowa Legislative session is scheduled to end Tuesday, but Republicans and Democrats agree they won't adjourn as scheduled.

Lawmakers say it will be at least another week before both sides can resolve differences over the state budget and adjourn the legislative session.

There is no deadline for ending the session, but lawmakers' per diem ends on Tuesday.

Last year the legislative session continued until the end of June, long past the scheduled adjournment.
