Iowa State Senator from District 24, Jesse Green has been named Vice Chairman of the Labor Committee. The subcommittee met last week and Green chaired a meeting concerning State Senate Bill 1030. That bill if passed would provide new adoptive parents the same treatment and benefits by employers as biological parents. SSB 1030 is a bipartisan bill that passed through the subcommittee last week. Other subcommittee meetings, Green was involved in focused on tax credits and property tax incentives for new resident employees that move to Iowa. The State Senate expects to begin to address the Bottle Bill this week.
