STATE PATROL: Bill Could Increase Funding
The Iowa State Patrol could soon see an increase in funding for more patrolmen.
Thursday morning, a senate subcommittee voted to increase funding for more full-time positions.
The bill allows for about 12 full-time employees.
The President of the Iowa State Troopers Association says the vote is a step in the right direction.
The bill now moves on to the full committee for consideration.
