Iowa lawmakers joined this week in focusing attention on illegal immigration and the southern border, while also advocating for disaster aid, Farm Bill updates and a proposal to control prescription drug prices.
Building the wall
Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks proposed a resolution to direct the federal government to hand over materials for constructing the southern border wall to states so that they can continue the work.
Miller-Meeks’ proposal is companion legislation to the Border’s Unused Idle and Lying Dormant Inventory Transfer (BUILD IT) Act sponsored by Sen. Joni Ernst. Sen. Chuck Grassley co-sponsored the bill.
