One MBI Priority Signed; One more on the Governor's Desk

The centerpiece of Gov. Reynolds’ legislative agenda, Future Ready Iowa, was signed this week at her annual Future Ready Iowa Summit. Workforce in general, and support for Future ReadyIowa were also MBI priorities. There were many public and private partners in this endeavor that came together in a bipartisan way.  MBI was proud to play a small role in helping the overall effort. 
 
In addition to Future Ready Iowa, another MBI priority—our Mechanics’ Lien bill—passed the House and is on the governor’s desk for her consideration.  I expect that bill to be signed next week.  More on that below…..
 
Tax reform and budget targets continue to be part of the legislative logjam.  As soon as one breaks free, the sprint to the finish will begin. I would expect some major decisions to be made next week.  Check out the updates below for more information on our priorities and other pieces of legislation we are monitoring.
