DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa lawmakers head back to work Monday at the Statehouse in Des Moines when the 2016 legislative session opens.

Lawmakers sit down to a $7 billion budget and figuring out how much should go to kindergarten through 12th grade education will be at the top of their to-do lists.

The Des Moines Register has compiled a list of some other top issues to look out for. Legislators will also be focusing on gun laws, water quality projects, and funding for Planned Parenthood.

The session is set to be finished around April 19th, but could go longer if lawmakers are unable to agree on a budget.
