Overview / Major Events
This week the General Assembly held a Memorial Service to honor all the former members of the Iowa Legislature who passed from this life over the last two years. It is a sober reminder of the debts we owe to those who made these institutions great and the responsibility on all of us who work in this building to continue to build on their legacies.
Notable members who passed in the last two years include former House Speaker, Don Avenson, former State Senator and Lt. Governor, Joy Corning, former Senate President and US Congressman Leonard Boswell, and former State Senator and Senate Majority Leader, Cal Hultman. May they all rest in peace.
