The Iowa legislature got underway this week and swore in its new two-year General Assembly. Although the ceremony was a prominent feature, matters of business came to the forefront quickly.

The IGA will continue monitoring these bills in addition to registering its opposition to SF 24, which proposes a smoke-free casino being built in Cedar Rapids, and SF 36, which would eliminate the exception that allows smoking in casinos legal.
