IOWA POLITICS: Political Aspirations, Issues And Scandals
The gas tax could be one of the things Iowa legislators discuss in the upcoming session.
Lawmakers will get back to business on Monday for the first session of 2014. Legislators will likely use the session to discuss raising the minimum wage, expanding access to broadband and education reform.
Lawmakers running for reelection are likely hoping to avoid the scandal plaguing one of the most talked about presidential candidates for 2016. There will be a continued conversation about what New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did and did not know about the political retribution in what is now being called Bridge-Gate.
Republican Jeff Boeyink said he thinks Christie’s 2016 presidential chances could hinge on the damaging information coming out showing Christie’s involvement in the scandal.
