Date posted - January 11, 2013
Hull, Iowa — The Iowa Legislature is on the brink of a new year.
We had a chance to talk to Senator Randy Feenstra of Hull, who now covers not only Sioux and O’Brien Counties, but also Cherokee County and a sliver of eastern Plymouth County.
He told us that he expects the name of the game this year to be “compromise”.
He says Governor Terry Branstad wants tax reform to be a huge priority this year.
Feenstra says he doesn’t see much hope this year for changing social issues like marriage and abortion.
He says the governor also hopes to make strides in mental health reform and education as well.
The Iowa Legislature convenes for the 2013 session on Monday.
