This week marks the end of funnel week in the Iowa Legislature. That’s what representative Jim Van Englenhoven tells KNIA/KRLS News. Representative Van Englenhoven says that funnel week is the time when the legislators attempt to get all bills out of committees and onto the floor. Many of the bills that remain in committee will not have any action taken during this session, although Van Englenhoven says that some large proposals like mental health care reform simply need more work before leaving the committee phase.
