“Kitchen sink” on Iowa Press

The State Government Committees in the Iowa House and Senate are panels which deal with a wide variety of topics, so wide that some legislators use the old phrase “everything but the kitchen sink” to describe the committees’ jurisdiction.

Representative Mary Mascher, a Democrat from Iowa City who is the chair of the House State Government Committee, and Representative Doug Struyk, a Republican from Council Bluffs who is the ranking Republican on the same committee, were the guests on this weekend’s “Iowa Press” on IPTV.  The opening questions were about the state government reorganization plan and early retirement incentives advancing at the statehouse.  The two also discussed gambling legislation, the future of the Iowa Communications Network, redistricting and limits on corporate contributions to campaigns.
