MINIMUM WAGE: Bill Approved By Senate Committee

capitol

A bill that would increase the minimum wage is still alive at the Iowa Statehouse this session.

The bill would raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour over the next two years. It passed a Senate committee Wednesday along a 7-4 party line vote.

There’s no word on if or when the bill might come up for debate in the Senate.

The bill would also face an uncertain reception in the Republican-controlled House.
