If you actually pay attention to the laws that are being passed in the Iowa houses you can see that both sides are negotiating and meeting somewhere in the middle from their original stances on each bill.

This would be in comparison to the gridlock on the national level where each side just complains about how stupid the other side is and doesn't do anything. At least it seems like that is where it is heading.

Yeah, coming from Illinois and following closely everything that happens in DC as well as a few other states where I have a history, that's one of the biggest thing i'm jealous about from growing up in Iowa and still having family there. The two sides can actually communicate with each other. It might not seem like it when you live there and it's what you see in front of you, but the alternative in so many other states is HORRIBLE.

Like it or not this is a framing state. You either support it or let Brazil sell corn to the world.
???

The type of roads needed to support farm equipment and related transportation are not the same needed to support regular auto transportation. The people are not there any longer. IMO, it is naive to not at least look at the shift in population and to see if here aren't ways we can better spend our limited dollars.
