Action Alert For Tuesday, March 7: Iowa GOP Wants More Guns Less Voting

From Senator Rob Hogg-

This is an action alert for tonight and Tuesday, March 7.

House Republicans have put two of the “dirty dozen” on their debate list for Tuesday, March 7. The bills are:

House File 516 – create government barriers to voting including restrictive identification requirements.

House File 517 – eliminate permit requirements to acquire firearms, allow “shoot first” defense, allow firearms in State Capitol, and other firearm changes.

You can email representatives about these bills and call the House switchboard (515-281-3221) tomorrow.
