2020 Legislative Session

Iowa's 2020 Legislative Session will begin on January 13, 2020.

The Iowa Environmental Council plans to advance a full slate of priorities for energy, water, and climate at the Capitol, which are developed with the input of our partners, stakeholders, and members. 

You are invited to review IEC's Policy Priorities, and read our 2020 Legislative priorities:

Thank You

Thank you for your input and action last year to advance important legislation and stop bad bills in their tracks. Thanks to your voice, last year, we decimated a bad land acquisitions bill and stopped a dangerous tax on solar users! 

IEC Keeps You Connected

Our staff, trained citizen lobbyists, and volunteers and stakeholders were at the Capitol tracking bills, building coalitions, gathering stakeholders, and advancing the protection of Iowa's environment. 

This work continues even when session ends. You can still get involved in several ways:
