Typically Holy Week is a slower week at the State Capitol. That was true this year as well. Three issues of interest did not see any floor or committee action:The good news is that Senate File 481, immigration enforcement, was not debated last week in the House. We believe advocates’ efforts are having an impact and slowing the bill down. There’s still time to contact your legislator.Senate Study Bill 3206 passed out of subcommittee last week but has seen no further action since then. The bill…See More

A new bill to provide for Education Savings Grants, Senate Study Bill 3206, passed out of a subcommittee last week. Some parents could use that money to help pay for nonpublic school tuition. The bill is now eligible for consideration by the full Senate Appropriations Committee.Thanks to those of you who have sent a message in…See More

Only bills that have passed a committee in both chambers remain eligible, except for budget- and tax-related legislation.Senate File 359 made it past the deadline. The bill, passed by the Senate last year, has been on our priority list. It would stop trafficking in fetal body parts which remain following an elective abortion. The bill advanced out of the House Human Resources Committee last Thursday only after the…See More

Dolan of New York, chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, chair of the USCCB’s Committee for Religious Liberty, are urging you to flood Congress with emails and calls asking for enactment of the Conscience Protection Act…See More

 IMMIGRATION ISSUESThanks to those of you who were able to call Congress in support of Dreamers. More than 48,000 calls were made to the DC offices of U.S. Senators and Representatives. Also last week, the U.S. Supreme Court declined the government's request to hear its “appeal before judgment” on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) cases. This means that DACA renewals remain available to those who currently have DACA status. Otherwise young persons with DACA status could be…See More

First, a reminder. Monday, Feb. 26, is the U.S. bishops’ national Call-in Day for Dreamers. You are asked to contact your members of Congress to help the nearly 1.8 million “Dreamers,” who are young people without papers brought into the United States by their parents as children. They may face deportation proceedings as soon as March 6 unless Congress reaches a bi-partisan deal to protect them.It’s easy to help. Please call 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard. You will then receive…See More

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter: First legislative deadline report, Feb. 19, 2018

The first legislative “funnel” deadline was last Friday. That means any bill that has not passed out of a committee by now is, in theory, dead for the session, with the exception of budget and tax bills. However, nothing is dead for certain until the legislature adjourns.Here’s some updates on issues of concern …The Iowa Catholic Conference has been working for many years on legislation to help parents be able to afford the most appropriate education for their children. House Study Bill 651,…See More

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, Feb. 4, 2018

There was some good news at the State Capitol last week. While the House’s bill to bring back the death penalty, House Study Bill 569, passed out of a subcommittee, it looks like there aren’t enough votes to bring the bill out of the full House Public Safety Committee. Our attention now will turn to the Iowa Senate, where a new bill to bring back the death penalty (Senate Study Bill 3134) was introduced Thursday.Senate File 481 passed out of a House Public Safety subcommittee last week.
