GOP-led Legislature won’t override veto of Iowa’s expanded medical cannabis bill


Cedar Rapids Gazette: A key Republican leader of the Iowa Legislature has ruled out a special session to override Gov.

House Speaker Linda Upmeyer, R-Clear Lake, said her preference would be to “bring everyone to the table” during the interim, as Reynolds has suggested, in hopes of crafting a new bill that more closely mirrors recommendations by the state board that oversees Iowa’s medical cannabis program. The vetoed bill passed with nearly unanimous bipartisan support.
