The 2014 session of the Iowa Legislature is underway

Posted:
DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

The gavel dropped in both chambers of the statehouse in Des Moines at ten 'o clock Monday morning.

The 85th General Assembly has the goals of approving a budget and pursuing legislation on issues like Internet access, bullying and veteran support.

It's a more modest agenda this year.

The session has fewer scheduled days and it is an election year for many lawmakers, so they are likely to be motivated to finish quickly.

KTIV's Matt Breen is covering opening day in Des Moines and will have more stories from opening day and the top priorities from our area lawmakers.
