***ACTION ALERT: VOTES TODAY***
Later today, lawmakers in the House and Senate will be taking key votes on guns and women’s health care.
In the Senate, the GOP is brining up a comprehensive gun bill (House File 517) which includes expanded use of deadly force by gun owners, fewer background checks, and even allows guns at the State Capitol.
- Call your State Senator at 515-281-3371 today
- Call the GOP floor manager of the bill Sen. Dawson at 515-281-3371 and tell him to drop the bill
In the House, Republicans have scheduled debate on a bill to ban abortion bill after 20 weeks (Senate File 471), but a group of GOP lawmakers have filed a last minute amendment (H-1271) to change it to a 6 week ban instead. This is the bill that made national headlines last week and would be the strictest law in the country while likely banning some common forms of birth control as well.
