House Study Bill 117, sponsored by State Representative Lance Horbach (R-Tama), passed out of the Iowa House Labor Committee early this morning on a party line vote.  Democrats forced an all-nighter adding 50 amendments all of which were voted.

This bill would limit collective bargaining for Iowa’s public employees over health insurance and layoff procedures.  The bill will go to the full House next week.

Then once it passes the House expect it to die in the Iowa Senate since Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal (D-Council Bluffs) is unlikely to allow it to come to a vote.

What a surprise.
