Serving O'Brien & Clay Counties

S-N Editorial

Not exactly a good look

Suffice it to say, Iowa Republicans had a “great” legislative session in 2023.

With suffocating majorities in both chambers and a friendly face in the governor’s office, the GOP had little trouble pushing through its agenda with ease. Bills forcing taxpayer dollars to be used on private K-12 education and other school-related changes faced little chance at being stopped. Other issues of monumental importance to Republicans in 2023 – like book bans, transgender-related legislation and loosened child labor laws – also topped the list.

And then there was SF 478.

Pure political vengeance in nature...
