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…

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, Feb. 11, 2018

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…

Banuelos working with area Councils to Carry on Fr. McGivney's Vision

"When the Knights of Columbus were founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, the goal was the protection of Irish Catholic families that had no access to public services when they lost their breadwinner.
135 years later, the Knights of Columbus continue reaching out to those Catholic families that have traveled from afar and have found comfort in their home: the Catholic Church. Our outreach efforts are not limited to charitable works: we want to call them…
