|Iowa Lawyer Weekly to feature legislative report|
While the General Assembly is in session, The ISBA produces the Legislative Report, a weekly round-up of ISBA legislative positions, information about bar advocacy and legislation of interest. In the past, specific law updates were sent to appropriate section listservs. Now, all members who receive the Iowa Lawyer Weekly will be a click away from reviewing this report in its entirety.
A link to the report, compiled by the ISBA legislative team, can be found here and in the right column of the Iowa Lawyer Weekly webpage, just above the Supreme Court Opinions, while the legislature is in session. Legislative questions can be directed to Jim Carney, Doug Struyk or Jennifer Tyler by dialing 515-282-6803 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, as it becomes available, the ISBA will publish the American Bar Association Washington Letter Major Legislation of Interest to Lawyers chart highlighting legislative and executive branch action on policy issues during the 113th Congress. The first issue for the year is the January 2015 chart. This report can be found below the previously mentioned ISBA Legislative Report, located in the right column of the Iowa Lawyer weekly page.
