Gov. Kim Reynolds is in the Iowa Capitol rotunda, where she's about to sign a bill banning transgender women and girls from female sports. She's connecting it to Iowa's "impressive legacy" of advancing women's equality. Image
Behind Reynolds are signs saying "protect my innocence" and a transgender flag. Image

Iowa Safe Schools' Executive Director, Becky Smith, released the following statement regarding the passage of HF 2416 today:
"It’s incredibly disappointing and frankly disgusting that there are members of the Iowa Legislature who have equated being transgender to cancer and referred to LGBTQ people as "mentally ill".
The supporters of this bill covertly strategized to ram this bill through to passing to avoid any confrontation, question, or challenge against this discriminatory bill.

1) Ever have one of those #IA "ewwww . . . " moments? @AP article on climate change sez that so-called 100th meridian line (hisoric line marking shift from the green West to brown West) has been moving east at about 3.6 miles per year. On edge of NW Iowa now. #IApolitics #IaGov
2) If "100th Meridian" moving projection is right, in about 30 years the dividing line twixt #BrownWest & #GreenWest will be in #FortDodge, #Iowa. Scratch about 90% off of the value of an acre of #FarmLand west of that line if it happens. #GlobalWarming #IaPolitics #IaGov
Many do not know that in the not too distant past, the gorgeous & unique #LoessHills of western #Iowa were sand dunes. If the #100thMeridianMovingProjection continues, they will be again. #IaPolitics #IaGov #GlobalWarming #IaLegis

Big #Covid19 outbreak at #MtPleasant #stateprison. 170+ inmates tested positive in sweep. Bumped #HenryCounty #Covid rate form 5% to 16.4%. But no impact on in-school learning at local schools thanks to #CovidKim's ruling that prison staff& families don't get covid. #iapolitics
What's #CovidKim's rationale for not including #prison & #packingplant #Covid19 cases in school opening calcs? Cuz active tracking would quickly identify cases & quarantine cases from the sites. So why didn't #IaGov establish the program? Needed 5K trackers. Now? 300. #IaPolitics
So what's in store for poor citizens of #HenryCounty (pop 20K)? Prison is 7% of population. 340 staff + 1000+ total prisoners. Assuming that half the staff are or 2B infected it's really big & no viable tracker system. Sorry. #SOL! #IaPolitics #CovidKim

#CovidKim Outrage du jour. @KimReynoldsIA refused 2 fund cautionary testing at nursing homes. Instead, $450K was diverted from #CARESAct to pay #IaGov staffing already paid by #IaLegis, then she hid shift! She got greedy. Folks will die. #IaPolitics #IaGov…
Half of all #Iowa #CovidDeaths occur in #NursingHomes and #CovidKim cut testing for Nursing Homes and took the money that it could have been used for to expand her personal staff budget. #IaPolitics #IaGov @IAGovernor @IowaGOP #COVID19 #Covid19IA
#CovidKim set the stage for general destitution of #NursingHome lives by gutting travel allowances for #NursingHomeInspectors shortly after she became governor in 2017. How can you inspect nursing homes if you cannot visit them?? #NLM #NursingHomeLivesMatter #IaPolitics #IaGov

Is this something a #BananaRepublic strong man or a #Stalinist East European dictator would have done? Sadly, #GOP is now an empty box, filled with wishes & nostrums of #SupremeLeader. No citizen input required unless you have his ear & money. #KAG2020…
2) #Iowa now crushed by many farm disasters, some #Trump inflicted: #China grain embargo, #CornEthanol market cut by #Trump's #EPA, #Covid's hit on meat market, extreme drought & now #Derecho, which destroyed 40% of the crop. Where's the ag plank? NADA! #IaPolitics #IaSen #IaGov
3) Is this a job for @SenJoniErnst & @KimReynolds, both of whom will speak at @GOPconvention? Will they say the #Emperor has no clothes & NO commitment to #Iowa farmers after Inauguration? Or will they continue to sing his praises as #Trump walks over #Iowa? #IaPolitics #IaSen

Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus

At the @AP 2018 legislative session preview forum with #ialegis leaders and #iagov.

Leaders up first.

Tweet thread threat warning: Long.
#ialegis Leader @janet4iowa says @IowaSenate Dem priorities are job growth, retirement security (see: IPERS), health care access and mental health care.
#ialegis @SenateMajority leader @SenatorDix says top priority is picking up where Senate Republicans left off last year, promoting growth, making Iowa more competitive/desirable to live and work. (He's talking about tax reform/cuts.)
