How to Support/Oppose Bills

Say something! Put your thoughts in writing. Support your thoughts with facts and examples. Choose the communication method you are most comfortable with using (letter, e-mail, phone call, meeting). Remember to be polite, respectful, and concise.

Then share your ideas with your neighborhood association, city council, county supervisors, state legislators, governor, federal legislators, the president. Be sure to include your name and residing address.

If you don’t tell them what’s on your mind, how will they ever know? Let us know how it goes by leaving a post on the IFHS Facebook page or e-mail us.

Background and particulars about animal welfare bills introduced in the Iowa Legislature

Bills that Made it through Funnel Week One (Friday of the 8th week)

Most bills that aren't passed out of a committee by Friday of the eighth week are most likely dead, barring some extraordinary actions.

Bills that Made it through Funnel Week Two (Friday of the 12th week)

To stay alive for further consideration, most bills need to be approved by one full chamber and through a committee in the other chamber by the Friday of the 12th week.
