SF 230 – IowaStatus: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2017
CONCERNING PAYMENT OF INSURANCE PREMIUM COSTS BY MEMBERS AND FULL TIME EMPLOYEES OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND INCLUDING EFFECTIVE DATE AND APPLICABILITY PROVISIONS: Corrects an apparent oversight that has allowed lawmakers to avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in health insurance premiums. Premiums for most lawmakers will increase monthly premiums from $20 to, in some cases, as much as $446. The Bill requires lawmakers to adopt only nonunion insurance plans offered to executive branch employees and will apply not only to Iowa’s 150 lawmakers, but also to most other full-time employees of the legislative branch.
