What issues may come up in the Iowa legislative session that could affect decisions made by the state’s business community? Our Legislative Forecast panel discussion, featuring policy advocates from key organizations in the state, will focus on key issues business leaders hope to address or should be aware of during the upcoming session.

Among the questions we plan to tackle:

  • What do you see as the top business-related issue needing to be addressed by lawmakers during the session?
  • Some progress was made last year on issues, such as the child care cliff and broadband expansion. How much focus will be placed on keeping that momentum going this year?
  • The pandemic placed the spotlight on issues surrounding food insecurity and social and racial inequities in Iowa. What role do you see those issues playing, and what policies should lawmakers consider?
  • How do you see changes in the administration in Washington influencing the business climate in Iowa?
