It was a busy week at the state capitol in Des Moines. Four hearings were held on issues including minimum wage and worker’s compensation, as well as a voter ID bill and a plan to do away with a local water authority in Des Moines. Hundreds of constituents showed up the hearings, mostly to voice their opposition.
House File 516 would require Iowa voters to present ID’s at the polls. It would also change some of the voter registration requirements.
